Under-Reported Abuse

All violence perpetrated by an intimate partner must be critically assessed so that appropriate responses occur. There has been an increase in awareness as a result of the Battered Women’s Movement; however, there are other victims of intimate partner violence who may not feel the system is equipped to assist them. Explain why incidents of partner abuse against males and gay and lesbian partner abuse are often under-reported? Provide examples of how social services and policy makers could assist these victim populations. Your response must include at least two, outside, scholarly sources to support your findings.
