Domestic violence

It’s widely accepted by those researching domestic violence (‘DV’) in the UK, that female-on-male DV is at least as common as male-on-female DV. Some studies even say it’s more common. Only militant feminists keep screeching ‘1 in 4 women…’ but they’ve been doing it for so long and so loudly that the myth has entered the collective subconscious. Likewise the myth that women rarely perpetrate DV on their partners (whether male or female partners). The provision of support for male victims of DV is miniscule compared with that for female victims. Another part of the story of injustice towards men is the lenient sentences handed out to women guilty of even the most appalling acts of DV, sometimes committed with the most trivial of justifications.

Herewith an article recently written by Mail Online journalist Peter Lloyd – the worthy winner of a ‘Winston’ award not long ago – and published two or three weeks ago. It’s a shocking story, and I can add nothing to it.


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
