The 2006 International Dating Violence Study, which investigated IPV amongst 13,601 students across thirty-two-nations found that "about one-quarter of both male and female students had physically attacked a partner during that year".It reported that 24.4% of males had experienced minor IPV and 7.6% had experienced "severe assault".
CDC Director Tom Frieden stated, "This report suggests that lesbians, gay men and bisexuals in this country suffer a heavy toll of sexual violence and stalking committed by an intimate partner." In New Zealand, the twenty-one year Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study, published in 1999, reported that of their sample of 1,037 people, 27% of women and 34% of men reported being physically abused by a partner, with 37% of women and 22% of men reporting they had perpetrated IPV.Domestic violence against men deals with domestic violence experienced by men or boys in an intimate relationship such as marriage, cohabitation, dating, or within a family.As with domestic violence against women, violence against men may constitute a crime, but laws vary between jurisdictions.In a 2005 report carried out by the National Crime Council in the Republic of Ireland, it was estimated that 5% of men who had experienced IPV had reported it to the authorities, compared to 29% of women.In England and Wales, the 1995 "Home Office Research Study 191" surveyed 10,844 people (5,886 women and 4,958 men) between the ages of 16 and 59, finding that for the twelve-month period preceding the survey, 4.2% of men had experienced IPV.For some men, this is an admission they are unwilling, or unable, to make.
Researchers have demonstrated a degree of socio-cultural acceptance of aggression by women against men and a general condemnation of aggression by men against women, due to male violence causing significantly more fear and severe injuries than female violence.
The theory that women perpetrate IPV at roughly similar rates as men has been termed "gender symmetry".
The earliest empirical evidence of gender symmetry was presented in the 1975 U. National Family Violence Survey carried out by Murray A. Gelles on a nationally representative sample of 2,146 "intact families".
The second polemic argues that IPV against men is a significant problem and underreported, and that it puts women in even greater risk of victimization by abusive men, which domestic violence researchers and radical feminists have ignored in order to protect the fundamental gains of the battered womens' movement, specifically, the view that intimate partner abuse is an extension of patriarchal dominance..
For a man to admit he is the victim of female perpetrated IPV necessitates the abandonment of the veneer of machismo which society expects from men, and to admit being submissive to a female partner.
The survey found 11.6% of men and 12% of women had experienced some kind of IPV in the last twelve months, while 4.6% of men and 3.8% of women had experienced "severe" IPV.
