The UK Government announced (link) last week that it was introducing a further 18 specialist domestic violence courts into the UK.
However, as the court system is supposedly meant to be gender neutral, one would think that the Government's announcement would also be gender-neutral especially as two in every five victims, according to the Government's own figures (link), are male. Such naivety.
Firstly, spot the picture of a woman, no picture of a male victim.
Also note the comments by Home Office Minister Alan Campbell and Baroness Scotland, they are clearly only aimed at female victims.
Baroness Scotland says "'Improving the safety of women experiencing domestic violence and the support that they are given is a key priority for the government." It should say "improving the safety of women and men experiencing domestic violence."
Just another example of the ongoing bias of the present Government who continue to ignore male victims of domestic violence.
