It is sometimes claimed that women are the “overwhelming” majority of the victims of domestic abuse on the basis of the statistics of support services or prosecutions. However, the percentage of identified victims who are male diminishes as one progresses through the system from survey evidence at one end, to service provision at the other. Hence, the low level of service provision is actually a measure of the gender-bias in the process not an indication of the level of victimisation of men. The vanishing of male victims takes place in a succession of stages, as illustrated below.
