Is there a double standard regarding violence against men, from women?
Man assaults woman. Bad. And it should be...
Woman assaults man. Funny. And it shouldn't be...

27% of the time the man struck the first blow; in 24% of cases, the woman initiated the violence. The rest of the time, the violence was mutual, with both partners brawling.
