This poster looks at women who experience Female Same-Sex Intimate Partner Violence (FSSIPV). We took a look at some other factors that may influence the violence such as Gender Role Stereotyping (GRS) and Lesbian Partner Violence (LPV) specifically. We found that GRS and LVP correlate in the ways that potentially influence the abuser or abuse in the relationship.
