“But there are also surveys that show women and men are equally likely to be perpetrators and victims of violence in intimate relationships…
Women’s Refuge’s Henare gives a swift response to such statistics. “The question is about fear. Does she fear her husband? A woman is beaten by man for years, then one day she picks up an iron and says: ‘If you touch me one more time, I’m going to put this into your skull’. She is taking a stand the only way she knows how. Does he fear her? I suspect not.”
Unbelievable. Does she really believe that the? reports like the Dunedin longitudinal study are actually describing what she suggests?
