Male victims of intimate partner violence
a challenge to the gendered paradigm
This chapter will explore the received wisdom that men are the only perpetrators and women the only victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) often called "domestic violence". The development of the gendered paradigm is explored, and research evidence is assessed which indicates a clear gender symmetry, and male victims of female perpetrated IPV. The validity of the Duluth model is challenged, and compared to Women's Aid and Respect.
