Exposing Double Standards In DV Awareness

Ever wonder why when you bring up the high prevalence of domestic violence perpetrated against men, you get shrugged off? The National Post printed this article that exposes the double standards that work against men when trying to get recognition about domestic violence. A superb analogy is made with the issue of suicide, one that I'll remember for quite some time. Read it for some good strategies to show how callous and selfish it is for someone to say, "violence against women is more severe and prevalent, so violence against men isn't as important."
