Understanding the red flags: Signs of intimate partner violence explained by an expert

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 talk about ways to spot warning signs in an effort to prevent further harm and provide support to those in need.



"When we think about the warning signs, especially for progressing to lethal

violence, the absolute top early warning sign is strangulation,” Hattery recently said to The 19th, a nonprofit newsroom focused on women and LGBTQ+ people.


In an article on the recent passing of O.J. Simpson, she noted that "the Simpson trial was a missed opportunity" and "While the nation debated Simpson’s guilt or innocence, it overlooked the signs of intimate partner violence that his wife had reported before her murder."


Hattery's expertise has appeared in a number of outlets including The Conversation and New York Public Radio, an NPR affiliate.  She can be reached by clicking her "View Profile" button.
