Investigation Report on Domestic Violence against Lesbians and Bisexuals in China (Abstract)


Abstract:With the support of the China Law Society's Anti-Domestic Violence Network, a survey of domestic violence against lesbians and bisexuals in China has been conducted by the Tongyu – a non-governmental organization concentrated on China's sexual-related minority women's rights – and other lesbian groups in eight cities nationwide. Through the survey, we expect to further understand the domestic violence situation occurring in China's lesbian and bisexual population, and to recognize different types and sources of violence, the factors leading to the violence, and the situations for seeking help by the victims who suffer from the violence, all with a view to providing first-hand references to prevent the domestic violence against lesbians and bisexuals.
