Men as Victims of Domestic Violence: Some issues to consider.

Men as Victims of Domestic Violence: some issues to consider. DVRCV Discussion Paper no. 2, 2002.

The second in DVRCV’s Discussion Paper series takes as its focus research purporting to show that women are as violent as men in relationships. The paper untangles the methodology of research based on the Conflict Tactics Scales, and illuminates how such research has been taken up and used, including in the media, by those promoting a ‘men’s rights’ political agenda. This paper provides no neat answers to a thorny issue, but rather opens up the area for informed debate.
