Ironically, this is argued to be because of the work of the Women’s Shelter movement which has given women more options to escape abusive men, and escape, rather than homicide of abusive men, has been an unexpected outcome (Kimmel 2008; Van Wormer and Roberts 2009). Claims of gender symmetry are viewed by some as a distraction designed to deflect political criticism of male violence (Websdale 1999; Dobash and Dobash 2002; Kimmel 2008; Van Wormer and Roberts 2009). Van Wormer even argues that the impact of anti-feminist rhetoric should be considered in policy decisions, such is its reach.

There have been claims by politicians that this figure has now dropped to just one woman per week. The Home Office statistics for 2008/09 show an overall reduction in the number of homicides recorded (Coleman and Osborne 2010), but do not record a substantial drop in the homicide of females where the perpetrator is known to the victim. 9 women killed per week, so may be a little misleading’ (Monckton-Smith 2010a: 6). Buss states that similar IPF statistics ‘are pervasive worldwide, from the Australian Aborigines to murder among the Munda of India’ (2006: 71).

There were many supports for victims included in the Act, but the most controversial, which was quite quickly deemed unconstitutional in the Supreme Court, was the civil rights remedy.
