Martin Fiebert is a psychologist, since 1978 a psychology professor at California State University, Long Beach. His CV is here. Our thanks to J for sending us this link to an important report from Professor Fiebert, References examining assaults by women on their spouses or male partners: an updated annotated bibliography. It was published in June 2013, and updates his initial report, published in 2012. The full Abstract:
This annotated bibliography describes 343 scholarly investigations (270 empirical studies and 73 reviews) demonstrating that women are as physically aggressive as men (or more) in their relationships with their spouses or opposite-sex partners. The aggregate sample size in the reviewed studies exceeds 440,850 people.
Given the weight of evidence about intimate partner violence (IPV), the lack of support for male victims of IPV is a scandal across the developed world, as is the seizure of virtually all public funding to support IPV victims by radical feminist organisations including some well-known charities in the UK, for the past 30+ years. There are 4,000+ places for abused women in shelters in the UK, and just 11 for heterosexual men (Source: Mankind Initiative).
We’ll have a good deal to say about IPV in our forthcoming election manifesto.
