The National Domestic Violence Hotline presents startling statistics about the existence and reality of domestic violence in the United States. One such statistic is that “On average, more than 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men in the United States will experience rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner.” The prevalence of domestic violence in the United States has only been exacerbated by the ongoing pandemic. The United Nations has labeled the rise in violence during COVID-19 a “shadow pandemic”.
