But before #MeToo, intimate partner violence (IPV) was a deadly undercurrent for millions of women and men. About one in four women and one in ten men will experience a form of partner violence and report its impact, according to the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey. A recent poll of IPV survivors by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research found four in ten said a partner had tried to get them pregnant against their will or stopped them from using birth control—what’s known as reproductive coercion.
