IPV is the acronym for Intimate Partner Violence. It is domestic
violence by a spouse or partner in an intimate relationship against the
other spouse or partner.
IPV refers to any behaviour within an intimate relationship that
causes physical, psychological or sexual harm to those in the
relationship. Examples of types of behaviour are listed below.
70% of nonreciprocal domestic violence is initiated by women against men according to a 2007 Harvard study. To quote the Harvard Medical School research – “Almost
24% of all relationships had some violence, and half (49.7%) of those
were reciprocally violent. In nonreciprocally violent relationships,
women were the perpetrators in more than 70% of the cases.”
So, 24% of all relationships had 'some' violence, and half of
those (12%) were reciprocally violent (bidirectional, both parties are
violent). The other 12% were one-way violence (one perpetrator, one
victim), and 70% of this category is initiated by women towards men.
Don't let anyone tell you that the problem is and always has been mens' violence towards women - that's just not true!
