Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a serious and widely prevalent public health crisis that is defined as physical, sexual, or emotional violence between partners. One out of 2 female and 1 out of 13 male murder victims in the United States are killed by intimate partners. Nearly 20 people per minute suffer physical abuse by a mate. These CDC statistics precede the COVID-19 pandemic, which has imposed a host of unique challenges for all segments of society and particularly for the most vulnerable among us.
