I know that there are some who may ask the question: Aren’t men victims of violence too? NPC's answer to this is:
Yes, they are more likely to be victims of certain types of violence, such as muggings, but this wasn’t the scope of our report. The violence we focus on in the report is more commonly experienced by women. And women are more likely to be victims of repeated violence, as it is often carried out by someone they know.I'm not sure that that will satisfy certain readers of Family Lore.
