'You rarely hear about the female-on-male flip side of domestic violence charges in news stories about everyday Americans, let alone perpetrated by a 22-year-old starlet, but Emma Roberts shocked everyone this morning when news surfaced that, on July 7th, she was taken into custody in Montreal following a fight with her boyfriend, American Horror Story's Evan Peters. According to USA Today, he was found with a bloody nose and bite marks from Roberts, and she had various bruisings.
According to a study done in 2000, the statistics of domestic abuse in America were 1.3 million women versus 835,000 men. A more recent study from 2011 ups the percentage: One in four men have experienced "rape, physical violence and/or stalking" by a partner, and one in seven have experienced "severe physical violence," like beaten with a fist or a blunt object. And a 32-nation study by the University of New Hampshire claims that girlfriends initiate violence equally often as boyfriends do in relationships.
So don't forget to pay mind: This does happen, and it needs just as much awareness and prevention as male-on-female domestic assault.'
