Our thanks to Nigel and Chris for spotting this BBC News article.
The Respect Men’s Advice line reports a jump of up to 60% between emails and calls from men disclosing experiences of abuse since the lockdown period began. They, and charity Men Standing Up, also refer to the exacerbated difficulties that victimised men are experiencing when trying to escape abuse during this period.
While the article makes for distressing reading, the fact that it’s been published must surely be good news because our society needs to be made aware and accept that domestic abuse against men is a significant problem before we can ever hope it will be seriously addressed.
