Großbritannien: Häusliche Gewalt gegen Männer steigt

Die britische Anti-Gewalt-Initiative "Stop Abusive and Violent Environments (SAVE)" berichtet unter Übernahme eines Artikels der Daily Mail:

The latest findings from the British Crime Survey reveal that 17 men were killed by their partners in England and Wales last year. Forty per cent of reported domestic abuse victims were male (although this includes assaults by male relatives and partners).

Incredibly, if these figures are to be believed, more married men suffered abuse at the hands of their spouse than married women (2.3 per cent of married men were recorded to have complained about domestic abuse compared with 1.8 per cent of married women).

(...) ‘Domestic abuse against men is one of Britain’s last remaining taboos, but every year our helpline is seeing at least a 25 per cent increase in the number of men seeking help,’ says Mark Brooks, chairman of Mankind, a charity for male victims.
