Women Supporting Reforming Domestic Violence Laws And The Violence Against Women Act When discussing Domestic Violence, laws surrounding violence, and statistics, it is easy to imagine that a casual reader of this article will dismiss it as ramblings from Men who are upset that they can no longer beat women and get away with it. Therefore, this section of the article is devoted to the many women from A Voice For Men who have plenty to say about Domestic Violence. Additionally, we are going to provide links and commentary from other well established Women’s group who oppose VAWA and the current ways in which Domestic Violence laws are actually increasing violence, encouraging false allegations, creating false statistics, encouraging fraud, and which are centered around gender and sexual politics rather than ending ALL violence.

Meet Erin Pizzey. Never heard of her? Well if you have done your research on Domestic Violence you would know that she is a Woman who actually started the first Women’s shelter in the United Kingdom and is considered an expert on Domestic Violence worldwide. What we learn from Erin is that in order to end all violence stemming from domestic partnerships and marriages, we must do so equally and absent ideologies that Women are the only ones abused and that Men exclusively commit violence.

“VAWA has created a vast bureaucracy with an annual price tag of $ 455 million. Instead of addressing the root problems of violence and ending battering, the broad definitions of violence in VAWA mean that husbands are thrown in jail based on flimsy allegations of causing “emotional distress” or “unpleasant speech.” Meanwhile, drug-addicted boyfriends and alcoholic cohabitors continue to batter, and all men are assumed to be capable of violence.”

“The end result is that a bill that supposedly addresses domestic violence is, instead, a thinly veiled means of promoting feminist ideology, and anyone who dares to raise questions is accused of waging a “war against women.” In such a climate, rational disagreement is virtually impossible.”

From Women Against VAWA Excess, we learn how radical feminist groups are actually suppressing domestic violence statistics in order to bring to light “Patriarchal Dominance”, are publicizing articles that only show male perpetration of violence against women, and are obstructing evidenced based research that attempts to shed truth on the fact that women are equally responsible for domestic violence.

Phyllis Schlafly, an American constitutional lawyer, activist, and author states that “For 30 years, the feminists have been pretending that their goal is to abolish all sex discrimination, eliminating all gender differences no matter how reasonable. When it comes to domestic violence, however, feminist dogma preaches that there is an innate gender difference: Men are naturally batterers, and women are naturally victims (i.e., gender profiling).”

SAVE Services, a non-profit devoted to evidenced based and real solutions to ending domestic violence across all genders, is one of the top organizations worldwide that has an advanced legislative network that talks with Congress daily on ways to bring rational and humanistic laws on violence that have far greater outcomes than the Violence Against Women Act does. And, the board and legislative team consist of many women.

But there is another group of women who should be concerned about domestic violence reform that we rarely hear about. These women have a tremendous reason to see new laws and consciousness regarding violence change from our current thinking that “Men are Bad” and “Women are Good” ideology pushed by thousands of organizations and non-profits across the world. They are the second wives who’s husband are unable to see their children because of a false allegation, grandmothers who have not seen their grandchildren in a decade because of protective orders brought from custodial mothers who wanted to gain tactical advantage in child custody matters, sisters of men who have witnessed mutual combat between her brother and wife/ex-wife where he was the only one held accountable, and daughters of fathers who learned at 18 that her father was actually wanting to be involved in her life, but was either moved 5 states away, or prevented from contacting her because he yelled one night and the police were called.

Other Women who have an interest in seeing domestic violence reform, and who should be concerned about men’s right in general are the many hundreds of millions of custodial mothers all over the world who have male children that will one day face a system where he is likely to be alienated and marginalized in his child’s life because of a family court system that allows false allegations of domestic violence to proceed to conviction, or who will find himself on the wrong side of a judge who has been trained (thanks to VAWA) that his yelling is considered domestic violence under the law.

You think this does not happen? You think that evidence will exonerate him? That’s how the erroneous idea that false allegations only represent a fraction of all domestic violence cases is perpetuated Please do research on “preponderance of the evidence” vs. “innocent until proven guilty” and how these legal definitions influence domestic violence laws that are alienating tens of millions of paternal grandmothers (former custodial mothers no less) from their grandchildren each year.

The Future of Domestic Violence Laws, The Violence Against Women Act, and The Family Courts Domestic violence laws and complaints have always been used in the family courts worldwide as a tactical tool to put the opposing party in a bad situation in divorce and in child custody matters. Although, I’m not sure why given the century old history of marginalizing men in the family court process whether they had any history of violence or not.

What is clear is that there is a massive push by many father’s rights groups, some psychologists and others around the idea that equally shared parenting is the best approach after a divorce or separation. And, there are many US States stating to take a close look at shared parenting. We are even starting to see this take place in the United Kingdom, Canada, and other countries (although unfortunately to a lesser degree).

A Voice For Men believes that shared parenting scares organizations that advocate on behalf of women who have become accustomed to the control, access to social services, and the freedom to relocate after a divorce that custody has afforded  them historically. In 2012, the National Organization For Women’s foundation released their annual report on Family Law in the Fall of 2012 which began with the opening sentence:

This Special Report of the NOW Family Law Ad Hoc Advisory Committee focuses on the destructive ability of abusive parents (usually the father) – aided by fathers’ advocacy groups or fathers’ rights groups – to deny the protective parent (usually the mother) custody of minor children. Discussed in this issue is how abusers deny custody, and the damage it causes to a half million or more children exposed to continuing physical, psychological and sexual abuse.

Clearly, battle lines have been drawn by major women’s advocacy groups outlining that the domestic violence issue will be how the National Organization For Women plans on attacking shared parenting initiatives when they arise. And it’s working. Virtually all shared parenting initiatives have legislative language attached to it mandating that if domestic violence is a “concern,” then equal parenting can not be considered — thus another incentive for false accusation and the issue of a restraining order. 

This will be beneficial to those that benefit financially and politically from the manufactured rise in domestic violence statistics, lawyers who make tremendous amounts of money from two parents fighting for 18 years, rather than equally parenting, and Judges who use bad fathers as election props. And, the behemoth of all lobbying organization known as the National Child Support Enforcement Association (NCSEA) will sit idle and watch this unfold knowing that if shared parenting is realized, there will be fewer men paying child support while justifies their existence and political stature.

The combined power of the National Organization For Women, Bar Association/Lawyers Groups, the Child Support Enforcement Lobby, and other groups have always used domestic violence as a reason why it’s best to have a “mother take all” family law system. Because you, your sons, your brothers, your fathers, and your new husbands are natural abusers, which of course maintains their agendas.

Having said all this, I want to make it very clear to women in paternal families that you are equally devastated by this ideology and we are looking to you to join in this fight to oppose these groups because your presence in your grandchildren, step-children, and nieces and nephews lives are at stake.
