Domestic Violence against Men as Serious as that against Women

Preliminary research has shown that domestic violence is as common against men as that against women. The Amsterdam municipal health services (GGD Amsterdam) have therefore begun a national research project on this subject, claiming that women report violence faster and more often than men. Questions include who are the perpetrators, how often and how long does the violence occur, do the victims discuss it or submit official complaints.
