Ann Silvers Interviews about Abusive Women and Abused Men
Because of my book Abuse OF Men BY Women: It Happens, It Hurts, and It's Time to Get Real About It, I've done many radio, TV, and podcast interviews explaining how and why some women abuse their husbands and boyfriends, and what can be done to help. Here are links and summaries for some of my interviews.

When Women Abuse Men: It's Real so Why Don't We Talk About It?
My portion of this Femsplainers Podcast episode starts at 9:40.
Some of the topics we cover in the Femsplainers podcast (with links to related blog posts):
The motivating drives in partner abuse are to control, demean, or punish.
How women overcome any size differential to physically abuse a man who is larger than she is.
Why men and people in general are reluctant to recognize partner abuse by women (even when it's happening to them.)
In this podcast, I talk about ways women abuse men, and make mention of the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard story as an example of people having difficulty believing that men can be abused, while far too easily believing any woman who claims to be a victim of domestic violence.
I have several blog posts about The Johnny Depp and Amber Heard story:
