An invitation to contribute to a book about male victims of domestic abuse / violence

Contrary to popular opinion, domestic abuse and violence (‘DA/DV’) aren’t gendered issues where almost all the victims are women, and almost all the perpetrators men. Hundreds of academic studies show that in their relationships with intimate partners, women are at least as aggressive as men:

Across the world, the support available for male victims of DA/DV is miniscule compared with the support available for female victims, and often non-existent. We don’t want abused women to receive less support than they do currently. We simply want abused men to receive the same level of support.

I’m planning to write a book about men who are (or who have been) victims of DA/DV. The identities of the men will, of course, be kept confidential. I would ask men with an interest in contributing their experiences of DA/DV to contact me, along with any women who have perpetrated DA/DV. My email address is mike@j4mb.org.uk and my mobile number 07967 026163. Thank you.

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.
