Teen Dating Violence: Economic Impact – Education & Earnings @ BWJP Webinar
Oct 29 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Dating violence in adolescence not only takes a physical and emotional toll on young women, it also leads to less education and lower earnings later in life.    A young woman’s educational performance may be hindered by her partner’s actions, such as destroying books or homework or causing injuries that prevent her from going to school.

Researchers analyzed survey data of about 500 single mothers who were, on average, 32 years old and earned less than $7,000 per year. Participants who had been victimized by dating partners as adolescents obtained significantly less education.  Each additional year of education was associated with an extra $855 in earnings.
