Dear Rugby Borough Council,

Many thanks for you reply and confirming that this does not recognise domestic violence towards men and is gender bias towards females when it concerns domestic violence/abuse.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Rugby Borough Council,

Many thanks for confirming that you are a gender bias council when it comes to domestic abuse. This is evidenced by your reply, that being;
£220,000 is spent on female refuges within the county, £0 is spent on male refuges. And that there is one refuge for females within the county, yet none for men.
I find this somewhat barbaric considering The CSEW shows that 25% of female victims and 21% of male victims experience repeat incidents within a 12 month period. Furthermore, National intelligence demonstrates that the scale & impact of domestic abuse in the UK is extensive. It is estimated that in a year 7% of women and 5% of men in the UK experienced domestic abuse.

Many thanks for taking part in my survey in 'equalities for men and their children fleeing domestic abuse" and for confirming that you are a gender bias council

Yours faithfully,

David Darby
