An Analysis of Australia's Response to Male Victims of Domestic Violence
14 DEC 2021
3.00 PM - 4.30 PM
Online via Zoom

The evidence base around domestic violence (DV) perpetrated against men is limited. Statistics reveal that male victims of DV exist and make up a relatively large number of victims. This research project analyses Australian governments’ policy responses to male victims and explores possible influences of gender stereotypes in them. It examines if male victims are included in governments’ policies and initiatives as all victims regardless of gender need support services. It also investigates the implications of policy responses in practice and demonstrates that the legislation concerning DV is gender neutral but when it comes down to practice such as the justice system, legal practice, police officers, service providers, etc., the implications of DV policies are not gender neutral.
