call upon the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh
Government to stop Domestic Abuse (DA) by treating it as a gender
inclusive and human phenomenon in which many men and women share
both suffering and responsibility.
Practical NOT Politics
The current proposal blames men, and only men, for all violence and puts a radical gender based prejudice before the real needs of women, men and children and where 97% of men do NOT fit this profile.
Fear of repercussions and lack of publicity in Wales have prevented open and vocal dissent.
This Petition invites an alternative approach that recognises that 86% of DA is the responsibility of both women and men. It also offers greater protection to children and removes the discrimination that arises solely from radical gendered prejudice against those people in same sex female relationships.
