Understanding MenÍs Versus WomenÍs Intimate Partner Violence

General Material

"In my previous paper, ÔTruth or Fiction: Men as Victims of Domestic Violence?' I argued that although women do commit Ôintimate partner violence' (IPV) towards male partners, their violence is not equivalent to men's violence either in intent, frequency, severity or outcome (James, 1999). In this paper, I will review the research that has been conducted since that paper was written, to see if those claims are still current."
