As reported (link), the Stephen Nolan show on Radio Five Live (5) ran a feature on male domestic violence victims.
It was first rate and aired an interview with Erin Pizzey and a victim. Subsequently, they were inundated with calls from other victims, many of whom were interviewed. Not in recent years has there been such an opportunity to air this taboo.
If you ever hear those from
- Women's Aid,
- Fawcett Society,
- Commission of Equality and Human Rights,
- Labour Government,
deny that men are victims, sit them down and make sure they listen to every single word said on this programme.
With this feature and other articles such as those in the Telegraph, The Independent (link), (link) and (link), if the current Home Affairs Select Committee on Domestic Violence does not take male victims seriously in its findings then it will be a whitewash.
