Despite the best of intentions, our nation's effort to curb domestic violence is not working. Current solutions not only fail to reduce domestic violence, but also create other severe problems. Families are being undermined and children harmed. Innocent Americans are penalized based on false accusations. And victims of violence are re-victimized by a rigid system that ignores their wishes, or excludes them altogether.

R.A.D.A.R. – Respecting Accuracy in Domestic Abuse Reporting – is a non-profit, non-partisan organization of men and women working to improve the effectiveness of our nation's approach to solving domestic violence.

Partner Abuse State Of Knowledge Project

"The most comprehensive review of the scholarly domestic violence research literature ever conducted concludes, among other things, that women perpetrate physical and emotional abuse, and engage in control behaviors, at comparable rates to men."

  • Partner Abuse State Of Knowledge (PASK) Website
  • Some findings from PASK Findings At-a-Glance
    • Higher victimization for male than female high school students
    • Rates of female-perpetrated violence higher than male-perpetrated (28.3% vs. 21.6%)
    • Among large population samples, 57.9% of IPV (intimate partner violence) reported was bi-directional, 42% unidirectional
    • 13.8% of the unidirectional violence was male to female, 28.3% was female to male
    • Male and female IPV perpetrated from similar motives - primarily to get back at a partner for emotionally hurting them, because of stress or jealousy, to express anger and other feelings that they could not put into words or communicate, and to get their partner's attention.

R.I.P. Earl Silverman, Founder of Men's Alternative Safe House

For the last decade, Earl Silverman operated Canada's only shelter for battered men, the Men's Alternative Safe House (MASH*4077) in Calgary, Alberta. Sadly, Earl passed away on April 26, 2013. We at RADAR mourn the loss of a noble and generous soul.

Memoir By Founder of First Battered Women's Shelter

In 1971 Erin Pizzey founded Chiswick Women’s Aid, the first refuge for battered wives. Her 1974 book "Scream Quietly or the Neighbors Will Hear" brought the issue to the attention of the public. In her new memoir, Pizzey recounts the resistance she encountered from members of the Women's Liberation Movement bent on suppressing Pizzey's findings that women are as capable of violence as men.
