Is a woman ever within her rights to slap a man?


Assuming he said something insulting, derogatory, or she caught him lying about cheating.

    I agree. It's also human (instinct) for that person to want to (retaliate) by hitting back harder. Logically it makes no sense to hit anyone who is twice your size either! Slapping anyone has the potential to escalate into a major altercation.

    FatFreddysCat, Don't you think it's a double standard though? If you had slapped her for using the word (prick). Everyone would say a man should NEVER hit a woman! This is said even if he is (hitting her back) after she hit him. No hitting period.

    "It is no more right for a woman to hit and man, than a man to hit a woman." - Very well said and true!

    Having "double standards" is what keeps society from having gender equality. Instead of (initiating violence) a woman or man should walk away.

    Adults should choose not to resolve their differences without violence. However if someone strikes you then you are within your rights to use self-defense! Some women would never hit a dog and yet they think it's okay to hit a man! Never initiate.

    If a woman feels the (urge) to slap a man then (she) should walk away! I would never advise any woman to go around slapping men. She can (control her actions) but not the consequences of her actions. It's not wise or safe to initiate violence.

    loamejan, Are you also saying a man is "justified" for slapping a woman if he caught her (cheating) or she (humiliated him) as well? Who determines whether or not a mistake is "tolerable"? If Woman has an urge to slap a man (she) should walk away!

    Very true! If I had a daughter I would advise her to never strike a man unless it was in self-defense. Men are human beings too! No one should be initiating violence regardless of their gender!

    One reason I ask this is because I saw the whole video of Ray Rice knocking out Janay Palmer. Before getting in the elevator (she backhanded) him in the face. He pushed her head, then she charged and he knocked her out. What if she never hit him?

    Before the advent of the Women's Liberation movement a woman slapping a man was the norm particularly if he got 'fresh' with her. You'd often see it on T.V. shows just to let the viewing audience known she was not helpless.
