Congratulations and good luck to Alison Waugh and Jackie Walls; the names on the petition are growing.
Domestic violence is not a gender issue and I feel there must be a real resistance to any trend that makes it one. All victims of violence whether children, women or men are victims of crime and the petition conceived by these two ladies could take us down the road to an equality before the law which, today, exists in name only. Domestic violence has been captured by a select few who benefit from the stereotyping and institutional sexism of current legislation and law enforcement.
From there it is easy to manipulate purely for political purposes and, somewhere along the line, the victim becomes a pawn.

Hello My name is Jon Parker and I run a male domestic abuse service down in Hampshire, Historically men have not advacated the need for domestic abuse services for them,this is due to fears of ridicule or societys perceptions
its only now that men are speaking about such things and are making progress. Services for men are 30 years behind womens services. Well done to Alison and Jackie.

p.s why didnt men put in a petition

Specialists argue that loan aid people to live the way they want, because they can feel free to buy needed goods. Moreover, various banks offer bank loan for different persons.
