The Amanda Hutton case. When women abuse their children to the point they die, why is it described as ‘neglect’?

My thanks to a supporter, Tom, for directing me to the BBC’s coverage of a tragic case in which a woman’s four-year-old son starved to death. He was so malnourished that he still fitted in a baby grow suitable for a six-month-old infant when he died.

Tom makes the following sound points:

This is a horrific case of child abuse. However, when abuse is committed by women it’s ‘neglect’ … I cannot see how this is ‘neglect’ … it is violence and abuse of the most sickening kind.

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.
