See the Triumph is a social media campaign with a goal of ending the stigma surrounding intimate partner violence. See the Triumph is the result of research studies with survivors of past abusive intimate relationships who have been out of any abusive situations for at least two years. These studies were conducted by Dr. Christine Murray at UNC Greensboro and Dr. Allison Crowe at East Carolina University. See the Triumph is intended to address all forms of intimate partner violence, including intimate partner sexual assault, violence perpetrated by males and females in heterosexual relationships, and violence within same-sex relationships.
