Women are more violent, says study

Source: The Independent

  • When it comes to domestic confrontation, women are more violent than men. The view is that women are acting in self-defense but that is not true – 50% of those who initiate aggression are women. 
  • Women lash out more frequently than their husbands or boyfriends, but men proved more likely than women to injure their partners.
  • Female aggression was greater in westernized women because they were “economically emancipated” and therefore not afraid of ending a relationship.
