Why Police are failing DV victims
It came as no surprise to me to read in the local and national
newspapers that my local Police force are one of 27 forces failing to deal

In Denial

allegation of Domestic Violence.  In
fact, men are reluctant to make any sort of accusations for fear of not being

Offensive?
I got more reaction from my last blog than any other.  I was told it was offensive.  I was accused of making Domestic Violence gender-specific
