In 2020, the phrase “I’m going to kill her when she comes home” was a viral and alarming search. 

Domestic violence has risen since the pandemic, so much so that multiple articles refer to it as a “pandemic within a pandemic”.

The google searches the past year showcase intentional violence, specifically from male partners. 

What is concerning is that there are more related searches:

  • 320 million searched “he beats me up.”
  • 163 million searched “how to hit a woman so no one knows.”
  • 165 million searched “how to control your woman.”

The United Nations Women for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women find that “1 in 3 women experienced physical or sexual violence even before the pandemic started.”

However, since the outbreak, UN Women confirms the following:

  • Emerging data shows an increase in calls to domestic violence helplines in many countries since the outbreak of COVID-19.
  • Sexual harassment and other forms of violence against women continue to occur on streets, in public spaces and online.
  • Survivors have limited information and awareness about available services and limited access to support services.
  • In some countries, resources and efforts have been diverted from violence against women response to immediate COVID-19 relief.

Meanwhile, experts of UN Women work to empower and educate women on protecting themselves from an abusive environment.
