Battered men in the United States are considered the "Silent Victims." 25,473 Washington men a year report a domestic
violence issue with an intimate partner (November 1998: http://batteredmen.com/gvdvdata.htm)
; however still most cases are unreported by battered men. Traditional labels continue to
be a factor in men reporting abuse by their female intimate partner or battered men in the same-sex relationships.
