Unge kvinners vold mot partner

Av 1 250 kvinner som hadde vært i et parforhold siste halvår, hadde 114 (9 %) fiket til partneren i samme periode, mens 70 (6 %) hadde slått, sparket eller bitt. 77 (6 %) oppga at de selv, men ikke partneren, hadde utøvd slik vold, mens 68 (5 %) svarte at angrepene var gjensidige. Volden korrelerte med annen destruktiv samhandling med partneren. Majoriteten av kvinnene som hadde brukt vold, var likevel fornøyd med parforholdet. Både aggresjonsrelaterte personlighetstrekk og utagerende atferd i tenårene var relatert til vold mot partner.

Thirty Years of Denying the Evidence on Gender Symmetry in Partner Violence: Implications for Prevention and Treatment

The first part of this article summarizes results from more than 200 studies that have found gender symmetry in perpetration and in risk factors and motives for physical violence in martial and dating relationships. It also summarizes research that has found that most partner violence is mutual and that selfdefense explains only a small percentage of partner violence by either men or women. The second part of the article documents seven methods that have been used to deny, conceal, and distort the evidence on gender symmetry.

Domestic Violence Research Group

Over the years, research on partner abuse has become unnecessarily fragmented and politicized. The purpose of The Partner Abuse State of Knowledge Project (PASK) is to bring together in a rigorously evidence-based, transparent and methodical manner existing knowledge about partner abuse with reliable, up-to-date research that can easily be accessed both by researchers and the general public. In March, 2010, the Senior Editor of Partner Abuse recruited family violence scholars from the United States, Canada and the U.K.
