Domestic violence and gender - An XY collection

More articles about:

There is a persistent debate, in both community and academic circles, regarding domestic violence and gender, and in particular, whether women's domestic violence against men is as common or as serious as men's domestic violence against women. The following articles are useful contributions to this debate. While they acknowledge women's domestic violence, they show that the claim of gender symmetry in domestic violence is not supported by the evidence.

Update: Advocates of claims regarding gender symmetry in domestic violence, and critics of feminist perspectives, include people such as Dutton and Straus. Recent critiques of Dutton's and Straus's work are made for example by DeKeseredy, Gondolf, Johnson, and Stark, and samples of their work are now available below.
