This document by Keele University reports on the findings of the third phase of The From Boys to Men Project. The aim of this phase of the research was to understand the experiences of young men affected by domestic abuse. Over two thirds of the young men interviewed offered accounts of violence perpetrated by fathers, stepfathers, and boyfriends against their mothers. Some had seen violence that looked potentially lethal, involving strangulation or their mothers having been knocked unconscious. Others knew their mothers had been sexually assaulted by a male partner.
