Extent of Husband Abuse

Few topics are more argued about than the extent to which men are abused by their female partners. Some male advocates assert that the majority of victims of domestic violence are male. Some female advocates assert that whilst male victims occur they are rare, and it is usually the woman acting in self-defence.

A very useful paper has been published on the Canadian Government's website setting out both these and other arguments as to the current research concerning husband abuse.
