Word meant to describe a crime where women beat men and men often do not report it. Supposedly , the most unreported crime there is. This was famous term used around the time of Lorena Bobbitt's adventure.
Women can be violent, and they can be aggressive towards their own sex, and to their own flesh and blood, which includes their children (of all ages); parents; and siblings.
When the victim is the spouse, partner, or boyfriend then the crime is the same as that of man using violence against his wife, partner or girlfriend; domestic abuse; domestic violence; or intimate partner violence (IPV) which also refers to gay and lesbian couples. The victim, if male, may be referred to as a battered man.
"Domestic violence is not about size, gender, or strength," says Jan Brown, executive director and founder of the Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men. "It's about abuse, control, and power, and getting out of dangerous situations and getting help, whether you are a woman being abused, or a man."
Both women and men have been killed as the result of domestic violence, but the rate is generally lower for men. For instance, in the United Kingdom, 37 percent of murdered women were killed by the intimate partner and for men, 6 percent were killed by an intimate partner. From 40 to 70 percent of the women murdered in Canada, Australia, South Africa, Israel and the United States were killed by an intimate partner. The World Health Organization (WHO) states that globally, about 38% of murders of women are committed by an intimate partner
Domestic violence against men source
refers to abuse against men or boys in an intimate relationship such as marriage, cohabitation, dating, or within a family. As with violence against women, the practice is often regarded as a crime but pressures against reporting complicate issues. Laws vary greatly from place to place.
Legally speaking, a case of physical violence from one person against another -- whatever the gender -- is considered battery.
A battery is a hostile unwanted touching. Angrily yanking a person's shirt is a battery the same as a slap or punch. Throwing something at a person and missing, or making threatening movements, is an assault. A slap in the face is battery. Add a small scratch or bruise, a bloody nose, and the offense is more serious and might constitute in some jurisdictions an aggravated battery.
And so, the term unreported battery might fit what you're looking for.
