Recently published reports show prosecutions by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in relation to domestic violence against females have reached record figures with more than 107,000 prosecutions made throughout England and Wales - an increase of approximately 18% on the previous year. It is believed that the rise in reported cases of domestic abuse is a positive result of victims gaining the confidence to come forward and speaking out against their experience of domestic violence. It is thought that in the past domestic violence against women had been under reported but due to the welcomed improvements made by the Police and prosecutors more victims of domestic violence are willing to come forward and to rightly speak out.
