AAMC's Abuse and Domestic Violence Program
Domestic violence is a pattern of verbal, physical and/or sexual abuse between intimate partners as a way to obtain power and control.
Domestic violence happens in same sex and heterosexual relationships.
Domestic violence occurs equally across all social, ethnic, and economic boundaries.
"Nearly one-third of American women (31%) reports being physically or sexually abused by a husband or boyfriend at some point in their lives." (link)
