About Abuse

Male Victims

October 20, 2014

Many men also experience domestic violence or sexual assault. This website was created with women in mind because a very large percentage of victims of domestic violence and sexual assault are women.  However, we understand that for a male victim, those statistics are irrelevant and the need for assistance and support is just as important. 

All of the legal information on this website applies equally to men as to women.  We respond to requests for information and support from male victims just as we do for female victims on our Email Hotline.  Many local programs and state coalitions can also help male victims.

Also, there are a few national organizations that were established to help men - see our National Organizations for Male Victims page.
