Youʻre Not Alone
Despite the fact that most victims of domestic violence are female, it is not always the case. Men can also be victims of intimate partner violence as well. While 1 in 3 women have reported some sort of abuse by a former or current partner, reports show that 1 in 7 men have also reported some degree of assault in their lifetime. Even so, women are more likely to sustain physical injury during an attack. This form of violence against women does not single out any race, gender, or class. Court records prove that there is a significantly higher amount of domestic violence involving the poor compared to the upper-class population.
