Every year, 1,510,455 women and 834,732 men are victims of physical violence by an intimate. This is according to a July 2000 Department of Justice report on the National Violence Against Women Survey. Because there's an average 3.5 victimizations per year per male victim and 3.4 per female victim, this amounts to 2.9 million male victims and 4.45 million female victims of domestic violence each year. How does the legal system handle domestic violence against men?
