dc.description.abstractIntimate partner violence (IPV) is defined as physical, sexual, or psychological abuse by a spouse, boyfriend, or intimate partner. It is a hidden public health problem, touching nearly one third of all women aged 50+ each year. IPV occurs regardless of income, education, residence, or social status. Older women experiencing IPV are adept at keeping their abuse hidden at the expense of their health, wellbeing, and quality of life. This shroud of silence surrounding IPV in late life is largely attributed to traditional and cultural ideology that prevents them from seeking help or seeing themselves as victims.en
