Why are so many men becoming victims of domestic violence?

A lengthy and disturbing piece by Antonia Hoyle in today’s Daily Mail. Our thanks to S for pointing us to it:

I’ve just left the following comment, I don’t know if it will be passed by the moderators.

A powerful piece. Thank you.

“During a four-week trial at Lincoln Crown Court, two former boyfriends testified that Michelle had attacked them with knives. Charges had never been brought against her.”

WHY had charges never been brought against her? Is it even imaginable that if a man had attacked two girlfriends with knives, he wouldn’t be charged and serve a lengthy prison sentence? Of course not. One justice system for women, another for men.

 

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.
