Intimate partner violence is a serious and widespread issue that affects millions of individuals every year. Angela Hattery, professor of women and gender studies at the University of Delaware and co-director of its Center for the Study & Prevention of Gender-Based Violence, can discuss the early signs of intimate partner violence. 

"When we think about the warning signs, especially for progressing to lethal violence, the absolute top early warning sign is strangulation,” Hattery recently noted to The 19th, a nonprofit newsroom focused on women and LGBTQ+ people.
