Findings indicate moderate ⬇️ in IPV aligning w/ bulk of existing evidence

1/n

journals.uchicago.edu/doi/10.1086/71… A few details:

* ⬇️ primarily on physical & emotional IPV [rather than sexual IPV]
* ⬇️ on intensive margin [index incl. frequency of acts] show average impacts

@RosemaryJMorgan @majardine @SallyRMelb @alexandraphelan @clarewenham @juliaheather @DaviesSaraE @DrSophieHarman @KarenGrepin Hi! Thank you for writing this comment - glad to see gender issues being considered from the outset! Like @SallyRMelb, I think there are a few distinct pathways via which outbreaks could lead to increases in #IPV & #GBV. Some thoughts: 1/n @RosemaryJMorgan @majardine @SallyRMelb @alexandraphelan @clarewenham @juliaheather @DaviesSaraE @DrSophieHarman @KarenGrepin First, on a macro-level, IPV may⬆️during times of high stress. Particularly when linked to economic stability & fears of job loss or not being paid/earning loss. There is a robust lit linking safety nets to both IPV & other intra-familiar violence: academic.oup.com/wbro/article/3…
