Women who strike fear into their partners
In this mornings Hearld
Kiwi women are an unusually possessive lot – if you believe their partners.
A national survey reported today by the Families Commission has found that one in every seven Kiwi men say their partners get angry if they speak to other women, compared with only 9 per cent of women who say the same about their male partners……………
The commission’s principal analyst, Radha Balakrishnan, said the report would be sure to spark debate.
“There is some uncertainty over the nature of the questions – whether you have fear in there, whether you have adequate context,” she said.
Long-term studies of people born in Christchurch and Dunedin in the 1970s have also found similar proportions of men and women being assaulted by their partners, but crime and health statistics show men are responsible for the vast majority of serious violence.
The New Zealand report’s results differ from similar surveys in North America and Britain.
Once again a representative of the Familes Comission shows their bais against men and an ideology that views domestic violence from a flawed feminist perspective.
