We go inside refuges for men who experience domestic violence from their female partners.

There are only fifty refuge places for men in England and Wales, compared to seven thousand five hundred for women.

We ask whether refuge provision for men is the best way forward.

With incidents against men on the rise, we also look at society's more critical response to men who are victims of domestic abuse.

Normally bigger, stronger and with more financially independent than their partners, why do men succumb to this violence and what are the complex issues that make them stay in an abusive relationship.
