The forgotten domestic violence victim

On Feb. They are a forgotten victim of domestic violence. When we talk about domestic violence — or should I say — if we talk about domestic violence we automatically assume the victim is female.

Statistically, men are almost as frequently victims of domestic violence as women. Nearly one in nine men compared to one in four women in the U. Closer to home, approximately One of the many difficulties is many believe the same resources and laws do not apply to a male victim. The resources for male victims are even less scarce than the awareness, especially in rural Minnesota. There are no advocacy agencies dedicated solely to providing services to male victims in our area.

This is not to say our local advocates are not amply competent to assist a male victim as they certainly are, and I have seen them provide the same zealous advocacy and support regardless of gender to each and every victim they represent. Programs like WRAP still offer services to male victims despite their name. Male victims face the same fear, anxiety, self-doubts and apprehensions of reporting abuse as female victims. They fear the abuser, they fear the system will not believe them and even more so they fear the retribution of society and the impression of weakness associated with a public admittance that they have been victims of domestic violence at the hands of their partner.

I highlight this issue to remind us all that anyone can be a victim of domestic violence at any time. I write this to encourage us to remember domestic violence knows no bounds and is certainly not gender based. If you believe you or someone you know are or have been a victim of domestic violence, please say something. You can find a list of resources on our Web site at redwoodcounty-mn. Site Archive.

Because it was a very sad thing to be taken from your home, your friends, usually some of your family, your school, having to leave all your possessions behind and go and stay in a boring shelter with nothing much to do and no-one to explain what was going on.

Males are often the forgotten victim of domestic violence. I had to conduct a lot of research to find individual statistics for the number of males that are effected by domestic violence.

Even though the law clearly stipulates that all victims should be treated equally, the sad reality is that male victims are even more likely to be overlooked than their female fellow victims. According to Sichuan Province's Women's Federation, of the 1, cases of domestic violence reported in the southwestern province in , 2 percent involved adult male victims.

Statistics and Research

Silke Meyer currently receives funding from the Department of Child Safety Youth and Women Qld and Family Safety Victoria to evaluate service responses to families and parents affected by domestic and family violence. Last month, eight women died as the result of male violence in Australia. Five were within one week. In six of the cases, the alleged perpetrator was a current or former partner. These figures seem all too familiar. This time last year, seven of the nine women allegedly killed by a male perpetrator were in the context of an intimate relationship. And like this time last year , media coverage, national and political outcry remained relatively limited.

While children remain physically unharmed in many intimate partner homicides, they experience trauma and abandonment.
