More than 65,000 Ohio women are victims of physical intimate partner violence (IPV) each year, and more than 48,000 Ohio children live in homes where IPV is occurring. This rate for children is three times higher than the number of children injured in a motor vehicle accident, and one-and-a-half times higher than the number of substantiated cases of direct child neglect or abuse.
