Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a major social problem and health concern worldwide and remains an emotional and controversial topic. While few studies have been conducted with a focus on men’s experiences of victimisation from female partners there is now a growing body of literature highlighting a knowledge gap and the need for more research in this area. The current study, undertaken in Aotearoa New Zealand, explored the lived experiences of male victims of intimate partner violence in heterosexual relationships.
