Abstract

In 1998, approximately 900,000 women in the United States were beaten or raped by their intimate partners. Although violence by intimates has decreased in the past decade-down from a high of 1.1 million women in 1993-the numbers are still staggering (Rennison, 2001). In this chapter, we review the literature on intimate partner violence: how often it occurs, the devastating physical and mental health effects, and how women learn to leave abusive relationships.
