Women's Aid CEO on emergency petition to prevent gender neutral responses to domestic abuse.

Farah Nazeer, chief executive of Women’s Aid, said "Today, we are launching an emergency petition to the government, because we are seeing established women-led domestic abuse services lose local authority funding. This has to be stopped before it leads to more women and children dying. Our local Women’s Aid member services around the country are saving the lives of women and children every day, and many have been running for decades. The decision by some local authorities to commission ‘gender-neutral’ services disregards the evidence that women experience the most severe domestic abuse; are more likely to be killed by their abuser; and that women experiencing domestic abuse need access to women-only support. Women need to trust a service and feel safe to be able access support, especially if they are leaving their home to move into a refuge with their children. Many will be living with long-term trauma, and will need specialist support to rebuild their lives.

The domestic abuse bill reaches report stage today in the House of Lords, and although the bill requires councils to fund accommodation for survivors, nowhere does it mention the words ‘women’s refuges’. Coupled with the current government plan to separate domestic abuse from the Violence Against Women and Girls strategy, this will only serve to encourage more ‘gender neutral’ responses to domestic abuse. 91% of domestic violence crimes that cause injuries are against women, and three women every fortnight are being killed by a current or former partner in the UK. Women-led domestic abuse services are under threat, and there will be severe consequences for women and children if we do not stop this now.”

The petition: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/577718

"Petition: Require local authorities to fund specific domestic abuse services for women

The Government should recognise that domestic abuse is a gendered crime and women are the majority of victims and the vast majority of severe injury and domestic homicide victims, and require local authorities to fund specific domestic abuse services for women.

More details:

We're very concerned that a number of local authorities are commissioning services with a ‘gender neutral’ approach, which in practice is defunding women’s refuges and lifesaving violence against women services. Evidence shows that women experiencing domestic abuse need access to women-only support. We need action now, as government plans to separate domestic abuse from the Violence Against Women and Girls strategy could only serve to encourage more ‘gender neutral’ responses to domestic abuse."

Fucking hell. The nerve on this woman.....

Is it possible to launch a counter petition to fight this. Or can we launch a petition to remove/amend gendered laws?

[–]aallport 1 point2 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

Not trying to bash the idea, but do we have evidence that there is a massive disparity between the proportion of victims vs the allocation of funds?

I can see "Bring the portion of gendered shelters, in line with the proportion of victims" being a petition that could work, but would need to be backed up by stats?

I would love to vote for such a petition, but the key really is in the wording since we'd want to encourage the majority of people to sign.

Ps, here's the petition banning circumcisions, it's only at 90 signatures :(

Men make up 40% of victims and there are barely any shelters for men, let alone funding.

[–]DBD_hates_me 7 points8 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

You mean besides them admitting 2% of funding goes towards males victims while also admitting 1/3 of victims are men?

[–]thatone_good_guy 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

The most recent studies show almost identical abuse rates and that's based on reported too and you know male abuse us underreported because if you don't say female abuse of men then people think men beating women

[–]DBD_hates_me 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Then this is even more evil.

[–]ByronsLastStandleft-wing male advocate 22 points23 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Men being helped! Noooooo, patriarchy!!!

The level of institutional and theoretical sexism is shocking.

[–]RobDog101 15 points16 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

before it leads to more women and children dying

Interesting. Ok Google, which sex kills their children more frequently?

[–]SonOfHibernia 6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

They have to throw in children because otherwise people would be too easily swayed by the equality argument.

[–]Georgeyppp 8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

What about the mistakes women’s aid make. I.e. help my ex get free legal aid based on false: rape, abuse, child abuse and stalking allegations with absolutely no evidence to back what she was saying up?

Surely situations such as this need to be addressed first before they say they need more funding.

[–]SonOfHibernia 10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

The whole feminist ideology is based on destroying men’s rights for the enhancement of women’s rights. They turned equality into a competition, which is inherently nonsensical. But remember, all these people have been indoctrinated by this ideology, but, possibly more importantly, they count on it for their salary. Especially in this case, it’s directly about money. Don’t think some extra money means a higher salary for this woman think again

[–]SamaelET 6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Can we do a petition to keep things gender neutral ?

[–]SamaelET 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

So they are forced to split the funding between male victims and female victims and they cannot accept it ?

[–]OmegaCloud969 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Remember boys, feminism is about equality lol.

[–]SonOfHibernia 2 points3 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

This is complete bullshit. Men and women are abused at the same rate. And women are more likely to use weapons. How many men need to die, either by their partners hand or their own because they can no longer take the abuse and there is absolutely nowhere for them to turn to for help, before we start doing something?

[–]Tank-o-grad 3 points4 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Your problem there is that once he's dead all she has to say is, "he was abusing me and I feared for my life" and there you go, another "abusive arsehole" in the ground "where he belongs".

A different angle to look at it that I saw once was a historical data study that showed as the number of women's shelters went up the number of men killed by their female partners went down (it used to be a lot more even in the numbers) far more than the number of women killed by their male partners and theorised that this would be because an abuser would try not to kill their victim so as to not get caught and to be able to continue the abuse whereas a victim acting in self defence might not be able to exercise such control. Of course should this be the case it raises an alarming question, is the proportion of men who kill their female partners in self defence far higher than currently thought?

[–]SonOfHibernia 1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

I’m not sure. The only answers I’ve seen from impartial studies shows equal violence, slightly higher on the female side but pretty negligible, between intimate partners. And I only see one sex getting any help. I also see feminist activists, scholars, and politicians actively working to suppress any help for men (mainly because they think funding for men means losing funding for women. But that also means they KNOW they’re taking funding away from male victims and simply don’t care).

[–]Tank-o-grad 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I fully agree with you in that men being abused is at least as big a problem (before considering support service provision) as women being abused, the only thing I was adding is how they'll dance around that truth.

[–]SonOfHibernia 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Personally, I think it’s one of the main reasons men commit suicide, that and homeless/joblessness, because society has put such a premium on male productivity that’s so ingrained a lot of men simply check out if they can’t measure up. There’s just no one who really cares, no resources, for men who are struggling. I think that’s especially true when it comes to an abusive partner, because society sees it as emasculating, and entirely the mans fault, if they see a woman being violent or verbally abusive. If people see a man treat a woman that way it’s usually moments before someone steps in; a woman treats a man that way and almost universally people say “I wonder what he did to deserve that?”

This is what real feminism looks like.

[–]Lazysweetness 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Marxist Feminism, is a supremacy movement.

Feminists: "Help abused men who dearly need help?" "Nooo, fund only women instead because pAtRiArchy."

Other Feminists: "Yass, end all men. Female empowerment. Derp derpity derp!"

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
