Research is indicating that there is a growing number of females being arrested for family violence and being mandated into family violence intervention programs. There is a growing awareness that there are significant differences between male and female batterers and that successful treatment of female batterers needs to be different than the treatment of males. Many traditional explanations hold that violence and abuse stem from the patriarchal organization of our society. In reviewing the differences between female and male batterers, research indicates that women more often attribute their behavior to self-protection than do men.
In exploring this topic, it is imperative that we not minimize or deny the extensive oppression and violence towards women. However, research has begun to identify a growing trend of victimization by women in their relationships that nearly equal that perpetrated by men in years past. Whether violence is initiated by women, men or as often happen, by both batterers must be held accountable for their intentional abuse of their partners.
