Domestic Abuse & Sexual Violence (DASV) is it gendered?

Domestic Abuse & Sexual Violence

A discussion of DASV and how it affects people of all genders and sexualities and whether there remains a “gendered nature to violence” in terms of victims, survivors, or perpetrators. (Norwich Millennium Library,  6-7pm, 4 April)

Alternatively, should we move to a support model that is gender free and simply tries to stop the violence, the sexual assaults, provide refuge to those fleeing DASV, irrespective of gender.

Is it even possible to be gender (or indeed sexuality) blind in the way we treat this issue?

DASV: “any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality”
