From the Paper:

"When hearing about the topic of battered men many people are surprised and then they become an object of joke. The cartoon image of a woman chasing her husband with a rolling pin is not that far fetched. One researcher noted that wives were the perpetrators in 73% of the depictions of domestic violence in newspaper comics (Saenger 1963). The issue of battered husbands has either been ignored or ridiculed. In 18th-century France, a battered husband "was made to wear an outlandish outfit and ride backwards around the village on a donkey" (Steinmetz & Lucca 1988). One of the reasons that the researchers in society do not investigate husband battering is because it is supposedly a rare occurrence. Police reports seemed to bear this out (Steinmetz 1977), with in some cases a ratio of 12 to 14.5 female victims to every one male victim."
