Read the real stories of people that have experienced intimate partner abuse.

The majority of stories here have been provided by women. One of the most common forms of violence against women is that performed by a husband or intimate male partner.

Although women can be violent in relationships with men, and violence is also found in same-sex partnerships, the overwhelming burden of partner violence is borne by women at the hands of men. This website reflects that reality.

We hope these stories may help others in the same situation.

Warning: Some readers may find the graphic nature of these testimonies disturbing.
