Domestic violence (battering) is a pattern of abusive and coercive behavior used to gain dominance, power, and control over an intimate partner, former partner, or family member. Domestic violence affects people regardless of race, socio-economic status, age, occupation, education, and gender, although women are at a significantly higher risk of becoming victims than are men. It is important to note that while most batterers are male, not all men are batterers. Domestic violence also affects children and other family or household members, and the communities the victim interacts with from day to day.
