  • Description

Native women have to overcome more challenges to have an equal chance at life's opportunities free from violence in comparison to all other racial groups of women in the United States. Nationally, Native American women make up the group with the highest poverty rate, they are among the least likely to attain at least a bachelor's degree, and are the lowest to have health coverage in 2013.2 These factors position Native women as the most vulnerable and at highest risk to experience different forms of violence in their lifetime.
