209A Study in MA Shows Women Just as Violent as Men

The Massachusetts News reported in this story that Steve Basile of the Fatherhood Coalition has directed a study in the state about domestic violence and 209A restraining orders. His work, which will be presented at the UNH International Family Violence Research Conference in July, demonstrates that men are no more violent that women and that a significant bias by the courts exists against men who try to obtain restraining orders against their violent partners. The article also mentions that Jane Doe, a DV group which opposes the research, went though great lenghts to attack and stop the research from happening. Source: The Massachusetts News [newspaper]
