Yet one in four women in the United States experiences violence from an intimate partner.
Intimate partner violence includes domestic abuse, sexual assault, verbal and emotional abuse, coercion, and stalking.Although many police remain confused when attempting to sort out incidents involving same gender couples and may end up arresting the wrong or both parties in a battering situation, opportunities to educate and train the police and courts about the realities of domestic violence in same-sex relationships are increasing.Although domestic violence is largely the same in heterosexual and homosexual relationships, gay, lesbian and bisexual victims of domestic violence have some additional problems. There aren't very many services to help lesbians, and women who have been abused by another woman are sometimes treated with ignorance or homophobia by the domestic violence service agencies and shelters that are supposed to help them.Historically, though, there has been an overwhelming silence about same-sex domestic violence.
