 (How) Can We Reduce Violence Against Women by 50% over the Next 30 Years? PLOS Medicine Whilst ostensibly ambitious, several high-income countries, including the United States, have reduced rates of some forms of violence by 50% or more over a very short period of time, and such reductions are supported by historical trends of reduced homicide over several centuries in several European countries [6]–[8]. There is no real evidence, however, that violence against women is reducing in low- and middle-income countries," writes Rachel Jewkes for PLOS Medicine.
