Domestic violence is defined as a "continuum of abusive behavior which includes verbal/emotional abuse (name-calling, blaming, yelling, threats and intimidation) and physical abuse (pushing, grabbing, throwing objects, hitting and beating) committed against a person by a partner, relative, or other person well known to the victim" (Tuscon United Against Domestic Violence, 1995).  However, it does not say that the abuser is always male.  Domestic violence can be committed by a woman against another woman.  Lesbian Domestic Violence (LDV) is a growing problem today.
