Matt Webb speaks to Dr Liz Bates about her research into male victims of Domestic Violence and female perpetrators.
A report by a lecturer at the University of Cumbria suggests that women are more aggressive than men in relationships.
The general perception of aggression in heterosexual relationships is that it seems to stem from the man, but a new study has found that actually women are more likely than men to be controlling and aggressive towards their partners.
Men are often thought to be the more aggressive partner, but a new study suggests this is not the case.
Women may be more likely to be aggressive to their partners than men, according to a study presented this week as part of a symposium on intimate partner violence (IPV) at the British Psychological Society’s Division of Forensic Psychology annual conference in Glasgow 2014.
