Intimate partner violence is prevalent in our country. Violence committed against men and women by their partners, whether in a homosexual or heterosexual relationship is characterized as intimate partner violence. We started this blog to educate Filipinos about this form of violence. We will post any relevant information about intimate partner violence in the country – what are the laws affording protection from violence, what are the rights of the victims, what are the obligations of the State, and what are the socio-economic impacts of the persistence of IPV in Filipino homes just to mention a few. Anyone is welcome to post queries or comments on this site!
