According to recent figures released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about a quarter of U.S. women, and more than 10 percent of men, have suffered from intimate-partner violence in their lifetimes.

The CDC defines “intimate-partner violence” as threatened, attempted or completed physical, sexual or emotional abuse by a current or former spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend or dating partner. According to the CDC, about 1,200 women are killed and 2 million are injured each year from domestic violence.

Domestic violence can lead to long-term health problems, according to the CDC. The agency also found that black women, poorer women, and women who attended college but did not graduate reported higher levels of domestic violence.
