It looks like another year of gross discrimination against men. Why do they ignore the stats that show 30 -40% of victims of DV are men? Why do they ignore women’s violence and psychological cruelty?

Can they not understand that if you lose your house in a raging fire, or have your house washed away or your crops flattened and stock swept away men also suffer the tragic loss. Perhaps the mother is less than supportive, finding all kinds of reason to blame her husband/partner for their misfortune.

These circumstances are tragic and all family members need support.
