Domestic Violence and
Child Abuse

Who uses violence in relationships? (previous/next)

    Anyone can be an abuser. Anyone can be a victim. There is no exclusion for social or economic class, religion, education, race, gender, size, ability or disability. Some typical characteristics of abusers include rigid ideas about male and female roles, particularly male superiority, jealousy, a history of domestic violence between parents or abuse as a child, low self-esteem, and being male (92% of all domestic violence incidents are committed by men against women, U.S. Department of Justice, January, 1994).
