Yes, women are charged with domestic violence in Michigan on a regular basis. I will say that I work with 3-4x times more men, because they arrested on a more regular basis, because one, they commit the offense more, and two, the stereotype is they commit the crime more so they get arrested even though it's more of a mutual thing. Women also tend to use domestic violence and calling the police as a threat against a man in my experience.
I've also found it a bit easier to work out great deals for women due to the overwhelming male/female stereotype at the courthouse - this is good news for women clients, but not great news for male clients although there are a number of great paths to a favorable outcome for men.
In a recent Michigan Incident Crime Reporting study, 90,274 incidents of domestic violence were reported; of course many were not reported.
Age of offender was most frequent in the 20-29 range with 31,044 incidents with 30-39 and 40-49 coming up next. Of these offenders, 65,460 were men, making 24,788 women charged with domestic violence, over 21,000 happened between a boyfriend and girlfriend, over 11,000 deemed to be "ex" relationships and almost 11,000 were against a spouse who the defendant is currently married to.
In terms of injuries, almost 33,000 DV incidents has no injury, and almost 31,000 had a minor injury. I have never represented a client who has caused anything more than a "minor" injury. I want to work with people who act in a manner, which the result is unexpected or simply goes one step too far, not to the level of purposely injuring someone severely where there's a major injury or near fatality.
The counties in Michigan with the most DV incidents where I practice are the following:
Genesee - 5,313
Ingham - 2,697
Jackson - 1,534
Kalamazoo - 3,270
Kent - 4,078
Macomb - 7,454
Monroe - 1,698
Washtenaw - 2,664
Wayne - 26,251
