    What is Domestic Violence?
    Domestic violence is physical, emotional, sexual or mental abuse which takes place in a close relationship. Most abuse is by men over women and is rooted in the idea of male dominance and control within the family. Domestic violence affects women regardless of class, race, age, disability or lifestyle. Abuse can also take place in lesbian and gay relationships and is occasionally perpetrated by women against men.
    Some facts about domestic violence
    • One in four women will experience domestic violence at some time in their lives. Two women are killed by their partner or former partner every week. A woman is raped, stabbed or beaten every six seconds. There are more animal sanctuaries in Britain than refuges for women fleeing domestic violence.

    Recognizing men abused by women
    By Cathy Young
    This year in Massachusetts, there was something different about the vigil for victims of domestic homicides held in October for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Three of the 15 names on the placards belonged to men slain by their female partners. In previous years, all the victims whose deaths were commemorated were female. The willingness to recognize male victims of violence by women may mark the beginnings of a change in societal perceptions of domestic abuse. In the same month, a conference on male victims of abuse held by the Battered Men's Helpline in Portland, Maine, received positive coverage in the local media. Also in Portland, a photography exhibit by victim advocate Donna Galuzzo, "A Celebration of Surviving: Celebrating the Strength, Success and Diversity of Survivors of Domestic Violence," open until Dec. 6, features photographs of gay men and lesbians who have been abused by their partners, as well as women battered by men (though not of men abused by women). Nationwide, a group called Stop Abuse for Everyone, which addresses violence in same-sex relationships and against men by female partners, has been gaining recognition in the victim advocacy community. It would seem that broadening outreach to a more diverse group of victims should be an unequivocally good thing for those concerned with domestic violence. But that's not the way many advocates see it. Nancy Scannell, legislative director of Jane Doe Inc., a Massachusetts-based domestic violence coalition, has told

    Bahasa Indonesia Nederlands English Español Português Archive Home Current story: Chapters: Violence against women Updated: 21 April 1999 In Central America, violence against women is rampant. It's estimated that one out of every two women suffers physical abuse at some time during her life. This level of violence has been attributed to a variety of factors, most notably machismo. Two countries – Nicaragua and El Salvador – are now taking active steps to stamp out violence against women.
    Listen to a report in Real Audio The cycle of abuse
    In Central America, violence against women doesn't necessarily begin with physical violence. The man tends to start by cutting off his wife's links with the outside world - with her family and friends. He then forces her to quit her job. In effect, he builds a wall around her. He tells her things which destroy her self-esteem. It's only later that the physical violence starts. According to Dori Magnussen, who is involved in a Pan American Health Organization project to combat family

      Men and Women Are Not Equally Abusive
      Critiques of the Conflict Tactic Scales
      Contrary to claims made by men's/fathers' rights and false allegations of abuse advocates, men and women are not equally abusive. There is not an epidemic of "battered men" in America. Although rare, bona fide abuse of men by women is taken seriously by the domestic violence community. No one deserves to be abused.

        This factoid cites research by Murray Straus, Suzanne Steinmetz, and Richard Gelles, as well as a host of other self-report surveys. Those using this factoid tend to conveniently leave out the fact that Straus and his colleague's surveys as well as data collected from the National Crime Victimization Survey (Bureau of Justice Statistics) consistently find that no matter what the rate of violence or who initiates the violence, women are 7 to 10 times more likely to be injured in acts of intimate violence than are men.

    It may be hard to believe an abusive partner can ever make good on his threat to take the children away from his victim. After all, he has a history of violent behavior and she almost never does. Unfortunately, a surprising number of battered women lose custody of their children. The actual number is not known and offenders appear to be no more successful in gaining custody than non-offenders ( ). However, violence against one parent by another is often considered in custody-determination proceedings ( Family Violence Project, 1995

Men assaulting their women partners comprise between 86% and 98% of family violence-related arrests. Recent NZ studies found that 35% of men reported physically assaulting their partners, and 33% of women reported physical or sexual abuse from their male partner. In a NZ Department of Justice study, one in five kiwi men admitted assaulting their partners in the last year.

    Love is the Answer: Creating Positive Relationships
    Holy relationships are based on the laws of love rather than the laws of the ego. They are relationships where two minds are joined as one, with the shared intention for living by the principles of giving, joining and forgiving, and where both will become one with God.
    In holy relationships, both people see the light of love in themselves, each other, and in other people equally. Their lives are based on the belief that our natural state is one of love, and there can never be any scarcity of love.
    In holy relationships, there is a willingness to live without attemtping to control, manipulate, dominate, demand, or possess any other person. It is a relationship where trust and equality replace selfishness, jealousy, competition, attack and defense. It is a relationship where each person's growth, individuality, and independence are fully supported, and where both people are filled with the fire of compassion for this planet, this universe, and for all that life is.
    It is a relationship where there is only unconditional love, where two souls come together as one, bringing light and healing to the world around them. It is a relationship where interest in the other person's welfare is equal to interest in oneself. It is a relationship based on unconditional love and forgiveness, excluding no one from that love.

    Report 9 of the Council on Scientific Affairs (I-94) Full Text Violence Toward Men: Fact or Fiction? E-Mail Story Print Story FULL TEXT NOTE: This report represents the medical/scientific literature on this subject as of December 1994. Depending on one's point of view and interpretation of the available evidence, male victims of spousal violence, or so-called "battered men," are either the missing persons of the family violence research literature and clinical caseloads or are an over-stated issue concocted to distract attention from battered women. Perhaps no issue in the field of family violence has generated so much controversy and debate as the question of whether there are a significant number of male victims of spousal violence. Those who use a feminist perspective to examine violence in intimate relations constitute one side of the controversy and argue that it is clear that women are overwhelmingly the victims of intimate violence. The divisions between the two points of view are deep, emotional, and, in the words of one scholar, probably irreconcilable.

    Sometimes the only messages boys get are the wrong ones. Many young men need advice and direction on how to behave towards women and they want to talk to you about it. Share your experiences and let them know what you've learned. Here's how: Teach Early. Bring It Up. A kid will rarely approach you and ask for guidance on how to treat women. But that doesn't mean he doesn't need or want it. Try watching TV with him or listening to his music. If you see or hear things that depict violence against women, tell him what you think about it. And your job isn't done once you get the first talk out of the way. Help him work through problems in relationships as they arise. Let him know he can come back and talk to you again anytime. Listen. Hear what he has to say. Listen to how he and his friends talk about girls. Ask him if he's ever seen abusive behavior in his friends. Is he worried about any of his friends who are being hurt in their relationships? Are any of his friends hurting anyone else? Tell Him How.
