ABC TV Q&A Family Violence Special - Question from Male Victim

Excerpt from the ABC TV Q&A Family Violence Special broadcast live on Feb 23, 2015.

Audience member Steve Khouw notes that ABS and AIC data shows at least one in three victims of family violence is male. He talks bravely about his experience of being assaulted and suffering immensely with psychological trauma. He reveals that nobody believed him – the police, social workers, the court system, not even his mates – because he is male.

Steve asks the panel how we can recognise and assist male victims of family violence in such a way that we don't take away the good work that we are already doing in preventing violence against women.
