Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is common and universal. It happens within every community. It impacts all cultures, all socio-economic statuses, and all ages.
In the United States, nearly one in four women, and 1 in 27 men, experience severe physical violence. About 20 people per minute experience violence at the hands of an intimate partner. Too often, they keep silent out of shame, fear, or pressures due to life situations.
