Violent women - male victims of domestic violence 16 Jan 2007
We frequently hear about domestic violence against women, but men can also be victims of violence at the hands of their partners. According to Home Office statistics, one in four women and one in six men are believed to experience domestic violence at some point in their lives. But  what effect does domestic violence have on men and what support is available to them?

Martha talks to a woman who has abused her former husbands, and to a man who was the victim of domestic violence.
