According to the 2015 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, over 1 in 3 women have experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetime. Yet, IPSV often goes unrecognized due to misconceptions about consent and the limited understanding of what constitutes domestic violence or sexual assault.

In this webinar, the National Organization of Asians and Pacific Islanders Ending Sexual Violence will delve into this crucial issue, revealing the interconnectedness of physical and sexual abuse within intimate relationships. Victims enduring both forms of abuse are at a heightened risk of severe harm, emphasizing the urgency of addressing IPSV.
