According to George Mason University, women are far more likely to make false allegations of domestic violence against their male intimate partners than the other way around.
This is especially true in situations where women actually perpetrate violence against men. 73% of male victims of female-perpetrated violence report that their partners have threatened false accusations, compared to just 3% of men in the general population.
Of special relevance, although the preconception is that men are overwhelmingly the aggressors and that women are overwhelmingly the victims, studies have found that interpersonal violence happens almost equally – to 46% of men and 54% of women.
