The most dominant formula story or script for domestic violence is based around the constructions of the female victim or 'battered wife', and the male abuser. As Loseke explains, The wife abuse formula story that has flourished in recent decades is told in terms of clearly immoral behavior, with pure victims and evil villains (Loseke 1999). ' Similarly, the formula story promotes the use of the category' abusive man' to describe women's assailants. (Loseke, 2001, p. 107) This formula story offers an important framework for women attempting to make sense of their male partner's behaviour towards them and also encourages women to hold perpetrators responsible for their behaviour.

Like women who are raped by men, women who are raped by women may fear this disbelief. Indeed, Emily, quoted above, reported that when she first told somebody about her rape - a lesbian friend at college - her friend did not appear to connect Emily's report with an act that was abusive or damaging. Instead, her friend sexualized what Emily told her, seemingly interpreting the act as the realization of a sexual fantasy. Gendered constructions of 'victims' and 'perpetrators' As I have identified, dominant images of domestic violence centre upon male perpetrators and female victims.
