Heard around town: Women not only victims of domestic abuse

 

Coverage of local participation in the statewide White Ribbon Day last Thursday caught the eye of male advocates on the other side of the country.

 

The National Coalition of Free Men pointed out to The Daily News this week that women aren’t the only victims of domestic violence.

 

“I work with men who have been stabbed, cut with glass, had their teeth knocked out with ashtrays, etc., by wives or girlfriends. They and their children deserve the same dignity as female victims, but instead they’re stigmatized, ignored and downplayed,” wrote Marc Angelucci, president of the Los Angeles chapter.

 

On its Web site, The National Coalition of Free Men is described as “a nonprofit educational and civil rights organization that looks at the ways sex discrimination affects men and boys.”
