It's only been in the past few years that the battered male syndrome has gotten serious attention. The latest percentage of battered men was placed at approximately 36% or roughly 835,000 of the 2.3 million abuse cases reported yearly. Researchers believe that those figures are far from accurate for the obvious reason that most men are very reluctant to admit they have been victims of abuse.

Does anyone have statistics on the number of women abused VS the number of men abused?

It depends where you live. I live in Canada and volunteer for the Abused Women's Centre. There are far more women abused than men, but, there are men also that are abused. Men are more often unwilling to come forward on abuse issues directed at them because they fear no one will believe them, well here it is as clear as can be: If a man is brought up by his parents that it's not alright to hit a woman, and he marries a woman who can be on the violent side, then even if she strikes him or throws herself at him in fight, he will back off. I have seen men who have been physically bruised, broken bones and teeth missing not to mention black eyes. Is he chicken? Not at all. He only did one wrong thing ... get out! I am happy to say that there are groups for battered men as well as battered women. Still, women take the worst of it all and there are by far more abused women and children out there. Statistics change drastically from day to day.

How many women abusers are there in the world right now?

There are no true statistics on how many women abusers there are in even in one country and certainly not in the world because abused men, children or the elderly seldom report that women abuse them. It was always thought for decades that females were the weaker sex and that men were the ones that inflicted verbal or physical abuse on women (80% of this is true) but, in the past 10 years or so it has become a fact that there are men who are also abused. Most men have been brought up to not hit a woman and thus they don't if their wife or girlfriend should hit them. The man is embarrassed and seldom will admit to family members or friends that this is happening and most do not seek psychological counseling for the problem. Now there are not only programs for Abused Women; child or the elderly, but programs for Abused Men.

There are no true statistics of women who abuse men because decent men who know they shouldn't hita woman or be verbally abusive back to their spouse do not report abuse as often as women for fear that they will be labeled as being weak.
