At DABS, we fully support all efforts to protect women and girls. However, it should never be to the detriment of male victims and their children. Unfortunately, some within the domestic abuse sector, would argue that domestic abuse against men by female perpetrators, is rare or even non existent. However, there are many studies that show quite the opposite.
