Bisexual Women and Intimate Partner Violence

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals historically receive less attention in terms of intimate partner violence services and support than cisgender, heterosexual female victims. This bias is reflected in national data that tend to omit information on sexual orientation and gender identity or that only capture current intimate partner gender. As a result, bisexual IPV victims are overlooked or misclassified as heterosexual or lesbian.
