    Are there any cases of assault on a man by a woman?

    There are so many instances of men assaulting women, men, children and so many organizations voicing the struggle of the victims. However, aren't there any incidents where men are victims and women the perpetrators of an attack? Assault can be physical, sexual, emotional, political etc. Are men facing challenges in any of these spheres because of women?

    There are many but they are often not taken seriously. I have personally experienced it but a man has to be strong and walk away and not escalate the situation. The law will in most cases side with the woman. It is not fair but unfortunately due to the prevalence of the other cases, women need to be protected from abusers.

    Sure, each time a child is aborted with out permission from the man is an emotional and biological assault against a man. You will find plenty of stories online about men and the emotional impact abortion has on them.

    I will be doing an entire hub series on these matters in the future. Most likely in three to four parts. It will be a philosophical hub in many cases dealing with human nature going from an understanding of the biological matters that take place between man and woman and then logically how this applies forward into the intellectual and emotional matters that take place between men and women, and finally ending on the the three natural reproductive rights that are afforded to each.

    Each article will also explore how the so called "reproductive rights" that some women attest are under assault effect both men and women in deep ways, and has caused a fracture in sex relations.

    Here goes an interesting read that will be the basis of the entire first part of the article series, which will deal with the Biological Nature first of man and woman. … women-men/

    I am sure there are cases. But I am sure that most men will not talk about it. It is not the Man Thing to admit that.

    It happens all the time. Our culture discourages men from making it public, so we don't hear about it.

    Yes there are.
    When I was a reporter I wrote stores of women attacking men with knives, guns, bottles, etc, without any provocation or threat of harm to the woman. It was usually done when the man was sleeping. Thus, there may had been some history leading to the attack but there was no immediate threat.

    Mothers have also abused male children, it you want to go into that level of detail.

    Bad behavior is not confined to only one sex.

    Of course there are some, but most of the time there is less physical damage done when a woman assaults a man unless there is a weapon involved.

      There are many "battered husbands" cases that are unreported for the same reasons women do not report attacks--embarrassment. A woman can hit a man with hammer. Most men will stay silent I have no data. The issue is real. Women do have it worse.

    My experience is:  I've only ever experienced a man hitting a woman BUT when the man loses control over the woman-- and she begins to not listen, fight back- verbally -he may think or accuse-- r u going to hit me-- in retrospect- he is only verbalizing what he wishes to do!
