All men are bastards! – 1995

John Coochey - The Independant Monthly

Published in The Independent Monthly – November 1995, this article, written by Canberra based economist John Coochey, raised the issue of false statistics being used by extreme feminists to lobby for government funds and further their own agenda. John also recognised and alerted the public to the questionable methodology proposed for use in Carmen Lawrence’s $1.3 million Women’s Safety Survey that was published in December 1996…….
Dodgy figures and suspect ideological interpretations give the impression that violence by men against women is rampant says JOHN COOCHEY. The reality is very different.

Michelle Carrado, M.J. George, Elizabeth Loxam, L. Jones and Dale Templar

British 1994 CTS Domestic Violence Survey shows more married men are victims …
A 12-item scale, derived from the Conflict Tactics Scale, was administered to a representative sample of 1,978 heterosexual men and women in Great Britain in mid November 1994. Men and women were asked to identify conflict tactics sustained or inflicted in all past and present relationships and those sustained in current relationships. This paper reports results for physical victimization and also reports on two further questions asked to discern context and meaning ascribed to such sustained or inflicted victimization. Both sexes reported having experienced physical victimization with a higher percentage of men sustaining victimization, mainly as a result of minor acts of assault. Almost equal percentages of men and women reported inflicting victimization against partners. Additionally, incidence of physical victimization is presented according to relationship status, age, socioeconomic category and by regional distribution. Both sexes reported a range of reasons or contexts ascribed to their sustained or inflicted victimization.
