Domestic violence reports continue to flood the media. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men aged 18 and older in the United States have been the victim of rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime. With numbers at an all-time high, we have to wonder how much worse they would be if the multitude of cases that go unreported each day were added to the list. Although both men and women experience domestic abuse, about 4 out of 5 victims of intimate partner violence are female. Abuse can be perpetrated in a variety of ways; some more obvious or noticeable than others. The visible injuries and scars from physical abuse are often more difficult to hide, but the scars left by sexual, emotional, verbal, and economic abuse can continue in secret and remain unnoticed by others for a lifetime.
