One in five believe there is an excuse for domestic violence

This disturbing information from The F Word Blog:

An opinion poll commissioned by the Home Office should be a powerful wake-up call on attitudes to violence against women.

Some of the headline findings have been reported in the press, but I would really suggest looking at the full poll results, which are much broader. (All the statistics refer to England & Wales.)




  1. Reminds me of this Onion story.

  2. I’m surprised the numbers weren’t higher in favor of slapping the little woman around. Domestic violence is still rampant.

    Did you hear about rapper Chris Brown and his girl Rhianna? The really sad thing is that she’s back together with him again!
