This is equal to more than 10 million people a year. 

But seeing the effects of battering has a much more powerful impact than just hearing the statistics. (Trigger warning)

The powerful 2010 PSA shows a woman wiping away her bruises and cuts in a reverse time-lapse, and reminds us how relevant the issue still is today.
