La violenza domestica, da parte delle donne

Su suggerimento di @RobertoIlGuiscardo.

Benché la violenza domestica venga comunemente immaginata come prevalentemente maschile, e le statistiche danno ragione a questo sentimento comune – rimane quindi un problema di genere – una ricerca svolta in Gran Bretagna mostra come le donne stiano diventando più violente.

Bruised and battered husbands have been complaining for years and now the biggest research project of its kind has proved them right. When it comes to domestic confrontation, women are more violent than men.

The study, which challenges the long-standing view that women are overwhelmingly the victims of aggression, is based on an analysis of 34,000 men and women by a British academic. Women lash out more frequently than their husbands or boyfriends, concludes John Archer, professor of psychology at the University of Central Lancashire and president of the International Society for Research on Aggression.Male violence remains a more serious phenomenon: men proved more likely than women to injure their partners. Female aggression tends to involve pushing, slapping and hurling objects. Yet men made up nearly 40 per cent of the victims in the cases that he studied – a figure much higher than previously reported.

Di questo argomento avevamo già discusso su hookii, parlando di quando le vittime degli abusi sono gli uomini.
