A Cry For Justice

Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

Do you have resource for male victims?

We do not know of any specific resources about domestic abuse of a Christian where the abuser is the wife, other than the posts under our tag Male Survivors, and perhaps a few posts in our Gender Differences tag. Nor do we know any specific people in the church who are experts in that area.

We believe that the bulk of the material on our blog and in our books can be just as useful for male victims as for female victims. If you are a male victim of abuse,  we suggest you reverse the genders of the pronouns in your head where necessary. We know that can be a pain. We wish there was a gender-neutral personal pronoun in the English language! But because the vast majority of victims who come to our site are female, we used ‘she’ for the victim a lot of the time. It is just too cumbersome to say ‘he or she’ all the time.

Also, we want to underline that ACFJ is not a Women’s Rights Movement – It is a Victims’ Rights Movement.
