Hi Dr Laura,
I very much appreciated your interview on Friday with the gentleman, Dr. Ned Holstein talking about how women initiate at least as much violence against their partners and how hard it is for men to find help in politics, the media, the courts, etc.
It reminded me of a movie I saw many years ago (1993) about a man whose wife was physical violent with him. It was called "Men Don't Tell" starring Peter Strauss and Judith Light, (possibly available on Netflix??)
In the movie, when the police come to the house, they assume he's the batterer. His parents, in laws, even kids believe he's the violent one. I remember him trying to call someone for help and was hung up on....eventually the truth comes out just before he nearly loses everything.
Good movie, worth seeing.
