A review by Donald G. Dutton and colleagues reveals that females are as abusive as males in intimate relationships according to survey and epidemiological studies. Predictors of intimate violence with women appear to be similar to those of men; including antisocial criminal records, alcohol abuse, and personality disorders.
Despite being a pin-up boy for the White Ribbon movement, Dr. Tanveer Ahmed made the mistake of attempting to discuss some of the contributing factors to male violence.
THERE is too little acknowledgement of the importance of male disempowerment in debates surrounding domestic violence, and discussions about family violence are stuck in the mindset of 1970s radical feminism. Dr. Tanveer Ahmed calls for a more inclusive approach in discussions on this important topic.
