Hard times for Britain's vulnerable women

In a country where one in four women has experienced domestic violence, funding cuts mean more are at risk.

    In the UK, women's groups say they are being disproportionately affected by government funding cuts. For a country where one in four women experiences domestic violence, this means even more are at risk.

    Experts say every week at least two women are killed by their current or ex-partners. But despite the harrowing statistics, 31% of local government funding to the sector - or $3.8m - has been cut between 2010 and 2012.
