More men victims of domestic abuse

Title: 'More men victims of domestic abuse'  - 40% OF THEM!

By: Denis Campbell letters@hindustantimes.com 

About two in five of all victims of domestic violence are men, contradicting the widespread impression that it is almost always women who are left battered, a new report claims.


Men assaulted by their partners are often ignored by police, see their attacker go free and have far fewer refuges to flee to than women, says a study by the men's rights campaign group Parity.


The charity's analysis of statistics on domestic violence shows the number of men attacked by wives or girlfriends is much higher than thought. Its report, Domestic Violence: The Male Perspective, states: “Domestic violence is often seen as a female victim/male perpetrator problem, but the evidence demonstrates that this is a false picture.“ Data from Home Office statistical bulletins and the British Crime Survey show that men made up about 40% of domestic violence victims each year between 2004-05 and 2008-09, the last year for which figures are available.


Male victims are almost invisible to the authorities such as the police, who rarely can be prevailed upon to take the man's side,“ said John Mays of Parity.

I don't think so. It is not true

Why don't you think so? Why is not true? Have you studied any facts? Do you know everything on earth? Are you God? It is arrogant females like you that exploit men and harass them.

This article is written in the context of UK.and it is not about India. The situation of UK is different than that of India wit regard to position of women there and the personal space they occupy there.

 Now if a predictable shower of choicest word comes, it is expected. 

BTW Such a reaction on Jyoti's one liner? 

Same questions can be turned to you Mr. Vishva.

This is open secret and many organizations are fighting for the same.

As girls are asking for equality in everything why doesn't it apply in law? why can't a man use DVC peition on women? Lets have equality here also.

But man is still controlling women in uneducated families, to save them there must be some clause. I am not sure about this but someone can throw ideas.

Kya Fark Padta Hai Roshni Dear 

Who has what and how many IDs...

What matters is not putting up with the bullying going on here...

And keep on making our voices visible

On some issues we may differ, some other issues we may not...

But essentially the concern is that we are not exploited and no one takes us for a ride.,..

May be in UK they should come up with a PM-DVA (Prevention of Men 'Against Domestic Violence' act)

 


But in India we need to come up with an Act like PMSAPDVCA.............. Prevention of Men 'Against Systemic Abuse Post-Domestic Violence Complaint' Act
