"Domestic violence is a male problem, and women are the victims."I disagree. Yes, men are more likely to resort to physical abuse but women either provoke or react with their own methods.
Here is data from the NZ Crime Survey . It doesn't understate the incidence of interpersonal crime in the way that reported crime statistics can. The graph shows the % of adults who were a victim of interpersonal violent offences in 2013:

Overall, we find that women (6%) were more likely than the men (4%) to be the victim of a violent interpersonal offence by an intimate partner in 2013.
- The percentage of women experiencing 1 or more physical offences committed by an intimate partner was 3% in 2013 down from 5% in 2008.
- The percentage of men experiencing 1 or more threat and damage offences committed by an intimate partner was 3% in 2013 down from 4% in 2008.
There is a growing body of belief and advocacy that demands we accept women are beyond reproach.
I don't know what world these people live in.
