WOW | Men Speak

Are men always the perpetrators of domestic violence or do they become victims as well?

Prasant Tamrakar

Anyone can become the victim of domestic violence be it men or women. However, in Nepal, women abuse is still prevalent on a very large scale and violence against men is hardly (almost never) mentioned. Our society deems men as superior or the stronger gender. This may have contributed for male victims to feel embarrassed about reporting their case of violence.
