BBC News 23-07-2012 One third of victims of domestic violence ignored.  In this news item Keir Starmer, the Director of Public Prosections, explains that women victims of domestic violence "fear that the environment and circumstances in which she might report will not be supportive" and that the Crown Prosecution Service is trying to change that environment. Of course male victims will always have this same fear when there is no mention of them in an important announcement like this.
