Expose the Hidden World of Male Victims of Domestic Violence

 

* In America, a woman is abused by her male partner EVERY 15 SECONDS.

* In America, a man is abused by his female partner EVERY 15 SECONDS.

 

* 75% of victims killed by their partners are women...24% are men

 

* There are hundreds of battered women's shelters in the U.S. 

* There are ZERO shelters for abused men. Male victims are redirected to homeless shelters.

 

* VAWA, the (Violence Against Women Act) EXCLUSIVELY refers to the ABUSER as male and the VICTIM as female. They are aware of this disparity and see no problem with the language

* VAWA is in part funded by the government. There is no such funding for male victims
