  Annotation: This study examined intimate partner violence against women in Ukraine.
Abstract: This study examined the prevalence and ecological correlates of intimate partner violence against women in Ukraine. A nationally representative sample of ever-married female respondents of the 2007 Ukraine Demographic Health Survey was used for this analysis. Findings suggest that although numerous ecological factors predict women’s experiences of emotional, physical, and sexual intimate partner violence, two factors were common correlates of all three forms of violence: the frequent intoxication of women’s partners and the exhibition of marital controlling behaviors by male perpetrators. Implications for the development of effective programming to prevent violence against Ukrainian women are provided. Abstract published by arrangement with Sage Journals.
