Domestic violence is a type of abuse that is inflicted upon a spouse or partner. It may also involve a child or other relative. Domestic violence can include physical abuse, sexual abuse, or emotional abuse. It is hard to know exactly how many people are affected by domestic violence because so many cases go unreported. However, it is estimated that someone is a victim of domestic violence every 20 seconds.

Additionally, 1 in 3 in women, and 1 in 4 men, will suffer violence at the hands of a romantic partner in their lifetime.
