 Programs for women, men and family victims of domestic violence. This list is not gender biased. If society purports gender biased information that only women are the victims, then we are doing what the abuser is doing by making women to be lesser of an individual. You are encouraged to read Dance with Danger. Also, read what Sandra Orozco-Stapleton (founder of WEAVE) and Erin Pizzy have said and advocated for 'all victims of domestic violence'. Victims of abuse would greatly benefit if organizations, websites and state-of-minds would remove language such as "women of abuse" and include men, women and children of abuse.

 Have you ever noticed in movies 
and other media that when a man 
slaps a women it is considered 
abuse, however, in the same media 
platforms when a women slaps a 
man accross the face it is socially 
acceptable. This domonstrates that 
some domestic violence programs have 
a long way to evolve because abuse 
is abuse no matter what age or gender 
is receiving the violence.
Dance with Danger:
A story of domestic abuse
and survival

(From Sacramento, CA.) Single
mother and Counselor Keisha
Allen shares with us in this memoir very
intimate details of how the verbally abusive
relationship can control the mind and every
aspect of one's life. Dance with Danger a
story of domestic abuse and survival is a
love story with a tainted twist.
Sin by Silence
From behind prison walls, Sin by Silence
reveals the lives of extraordinary women
who advocate for a future free from
Domestic Violence.
Sandra Orozco-Stapleton Foundation
Sandra founded Women Escaping A
Violent Environment (WEAVE) in 1976.
"domestic violence is not always a simple
matter of an abuser using power to control
a passive victim. By self-report, many of the
women seeking shelter were active participants
in mutual abuse
." Read more>>
Erin Pizzey founded Chiswick Women’s Aid,
the first refuge for battered wives."we should
not be arguing about men hitting women or
women hitting men but that we need to
recognize that domestic violence is not and
never has been a gender issue
– girls and
boys exposed to violence in early childhood
often grow up to repeat what they have learned

Below is the familiar Power and Control wheel. You will immediately notice it is intentionally 100% gender biased. Obviously, anything bias is discounted. Particularly for the Power and Control wheel, section "Using Male Privilege", which is the male biased against the female role, therefore; the wheel is defining the male and female role the same as the abuser.
The wheel was invented and intentionally made gender biased by Domestic Abuse Intervention Programs and based on statistics from 10 years past, in the small state of Rode Island. "Supplementary Homicide Reports of the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program in 2005, 1181 females and 329 males were killed by their intimate partners. Adams, D. (1999). Serial Batterers. Boston, MA: office of the Commissioner of Probation. Klein, A., Wilson, D., Crowe, A., & DeMichele, M. (2005). An Evaluation of Rhode Island’s Specialized Supervision of Domestic Violence Probationers. Waltham, MA: BOTEC. Analysis Corporation & American Probation and Parole Association. Final Report on Grant 2002-WG-BX-001". According to the wheel's own source, the abuse is actually 3 to 1.
 The problem with abuse of any gender or age is that it often goes unreported. How many men that were slapped by women called 911 and pressed charges? Very few if any! Therefore, to think that abuse is not occurring to women, children and men because it is unreported, is plain stupid.
Another thing about the biased wheel is it implies women are powerless! I Victor Stark totally disagree!
The bottom line for gender bias is simple, no one is going to donate money to an organization that helps a man with a black eye. 
To read for yourself why the wheel is intentionally gender biased and the dates of statistics, read from the organization here in a new window>>
