Domestic Violence Against Men

Readers Respond


Here are some of the responses I've received about this domestic violence initiative. I do not (yet) have permission to use names in some instances, so specific references have been removed.

Brilliant idea! I took a look at your link. Please can we have a copy of the full bill?

Keep plodding on ... In UK things are happening... After years of the Conservative government saying 'No' the new government is saying yes:

  • to unmarried fathers having a legal standing
  • to widowers receiving the same state benefits as widows
  • to fathers having a role in the family
  • to finding some way of enforcing contact/access/visitation
Even in child support, fathers are no longer called 'absent', but they are still 'non-resident'. Can you think of a better title? I like 'other parent.'

I would appreciate a copy of the proposed bill. I teach at [a] Community College, and would like to use it to inspire my classes.

Click here if you have comments or suggestions, want to be notified of legislative updates, or want a copy of the actual bill.
