The report also shows that aboutmen in the country are assaulted by their female partners, and that men were killed in 0. Bureau of Justice Statistics, NCJ and NCJ I would agree with Hopper's general position that law enforcement should investigate for possible self-defense, as long as fairness is given to both parties.
Moreover, more such evidence is rapidly emerging.
To take just one recent example, analyses of data from 32 nations in the International Dating Violence Study Straus, Straus and International Dating Violence Research Consortium found about equal perpetration rates and a predominance of mutual violence in all 32 samples, including non-Western nations.
Moreover, data from that study also show that, within a couple relationship, domination and control by women occur as often as by men and are as strongly associated with perpetration of IPV by women as by men Straus Graham-Kevan also documents the absence of evidence indicating that the patriarchal dominance approach to prevention and treatment has been effective.
In my opinion, it would be even more appropriate to say that what success has been achieved in preventing and treating IPV has been achieved despite the handicaps imposed by focusing exclusively on eliminating male-dominance and misogyny, important as that is as an end in itself.
Graham-Kevan's paper raises the question of how an explanatory theory and treatment modality could have persisted for 30 years and still persists, despite hundreds of studies which provide evidence that IPV has many causes, not just male-dominance.
The answer is that it emerged from a convergence of a number of different historical and social factors. One of these is that gender symmetry in perpetration of partner violence is inconsistent with male predominance in almost all other crimes, especially violent crimes.
Another is the greater injury rate suffered by female victims of IPV brings female victimization to public attention much more often. Although there are many causes of the persistence of the patriarchal dominance focus, I believe that the predominant cause has been the efforts of feminists to conceal, deny, and distort the evidence.
Moreover, these efforts include intimidation and threats, and have been carried out not only by feminist advocates and service providers, but also by feminist researchers who have let their ideological commitments overrule their scientific commitments.
At the same time, it is important to recognize the tremendous contribution to human relationships and crime control made by feminist efforts to end violence against women. This effort has brought public attention the fact that IPV may be the most prevalent form of interpersonal violence, created a worldwide determination to cease ignoring IPV, and take steps to combat IPV.
In addition, feminists have created two important new social institutions: However, the exclusive focus on male perpetrators and the exclusive focus on just one of the many causes has stymied this extension of the rule of law and the effort to end domestic violence.
Consequently, information on how this could have occurred can be helpful in bringing about a change. This commentary identifies seven of the methods. Methods used to conceal and distort evidence on symmetry in partner violence Method 1.
Suppress evidence Top Researchers who have an ideological commitment to the idea that men are almost always the sole perpetrator often conceal evidence that contradicts this belief.
Among researchers not committed to that ideology, many including me and some of my colleagues have withheld results showing gender symmetry to avoid becoming victims of vitriolic denunciations and ostracism see Method 7 below.
Thus, many researchers have published only the data on male perpetrators or female victims, deliberately omitting data on female perpetrators and male victims.
This practice started with one of the first general population surveys on family violence. The survey done for the Kentucky Commission on the Status of Women obtained data on both men and women, but only the data on male perpetration was published Schulman Among the many other examples of respected researchers publishing only the data on assaults by men are Kennedy and Dutton ; Lackey and Williams ; Johnson and Leone ; and Kaufman, Kantor, and Straus Avoid obtaining data inconsistent with the patriarchal dominance theory Top In survey research, this method of concealment asks female participants about attacks by their male partners and avoids asking them if they had hit their male partner.
This version omitted the questions on perpetration by the female participants in the study.The first thing anyone wants to know when doing research on domestic violence are the statistics, and yet domestic violence research covers so much more information wich can really make a difference to victims of domestic violence and their children.
