What You Should Know: As many as one in four women in the U.S. experience domestic violence in their lifetimes. It can be difficult to recognize because it does not always involve physical violence. It is always about a pattern of behavior in which one person controls and intimidates the other. It affects people from all backgrounds.
- Men, children and elderly can be victims of abuse–verbal, emotional, physical, financial, sexual.
- Immigration Status does not matter.
