According to the website of the Illinois Department of Public Health, Women's Health, intimate partner violence is the "leading cause of injury to women in the United States (a woman is beaten every 15 seconds)." The Illinois Department of Public Health, Women's Health website further acknowledged that "one out of every four women in America will be physically assaulted or raped by an intimate partner at some point in their lives. In fact, American women are more likely to be assaulted, injured, raped or killed by a male partner than by any other type of assailant."
This lecture is grant funded by the Illinois Nurses Foundation.
