Greenfield (1998) p. 20 states:
77
"Between 1992 and 1996 an estimated 800,000
78
female victims of intimate violence received
79
assistance from a victim service agency
80
shortly after the crime.
81
An annual average of 160,800 women victimized
82
by an intimate got help from victim service agencies
83
-- about half of which were governmental and half
84
private. This average translates to about 1 in 6

The above statement uses both "female" and "women".
97
NCVS includes persons ages 12 and older.

That seems to be the definition of both female and women above.

The above statement, which ignores men, is roughly consistent
