Two months ago we published a post on a bibliography of 286 investigations on Intimate Partner Violence (‘IPV’). All the resulting reports and studies showed that women are as at least as physically aggressive as men with respect to IPV:
Woman’s Hour recently had a feature on male victims of domestic violence (‘DV’). The two female commentators repeatedly returned the narrative back to female victims of DV, and even dishonoured male victims of DV by suggesting many of them were perpetrators.

I’m pleased, however, to see that AVfM covered it yesterday, and provided some insightful commentary:
