I have been trying to talk about domestic violence against men for many years without success. According to our society they do not exist. Abused men are invisible in spite of the figures that indicate there are probably as many abused husbands as there are abused wives.
I am hoping that the Royal Commission into childhood abuse in institutions will open the way for wider issues of abuse to become visible. The debate needs to be much more than punishment of the perpetrators. That might create a ‘feel good’ mentality in our society but does little to help the victims. Victims need voice and to know that someone cares.
I have created a book starting with one story at http://www.yosefalbric.com designed to be a continuously updated from contributions received. Also this blog will be open to contributions. Send contributions through my email at the website.
The book and this blog are intended to give a voice to male victims of domestic abuse.
