Treatment of Domestic Violence Against Women Before 1960

It is one of the greatest slanders of all history: that before the 1960s period, when marxist feminists were hired to fill jobs that would guide public policy, that society as a whole, and the police and courts, ignored, tolerated and approved of domestic violence against women.

Although the evidence contradicting this feminist lie voluminous, billions of dollars of taxpayer dollars are put in the hands of those who promote fraudulent information for their personal benefit (power, money) and to further their authoritarian utopian social engineering agendas.

Some readers will find dome of the punishments described in old news reports offensive to their ideas of treatment of criminals. Yet the point of this collection is not to offer an endorsement for each and every action described here, but to demonstrate just how, in the past, just how strong just how universal and was the male’s condemnation to the crime of domestic violence against women, despite all the propaganda that the public has been indoctrinated with that claims otherwise.

• You have been told that before the rise of feminism in the 1960s that domestic violence against women was tolerated by society as acceptable behavior and was not taken seriously by police and the courts.

You have been lied to. The people who told you these lies were paid to tell them you. In most cases you paid your own money (taxes and tuition fees) to be led to.

Here is one of countless pieces of evidence that demonstrate the truth.

• To see more eloquent, vivid evidence proving the lie and giving you the truth, see:

19th Century Intolerance Towards Domestic Violence

No, the claim that laws created by males were for the benefit of males is false. Yes, the "Rule of Thumb" myth has been proven to be a marxist-feminist hoax, taking an ancient English common historical notation published in the 18th century and extrapolating it into unsupported claims that 18th and 20th century United States communities, courts and legislatures (laws on the books) were in agreement with the18th century historical notation (Blackstone).


“[O]nly since the 1970s has the criminal justice system begun to treat domestic violence as a serious crime, not as a private family matter.”

From the entry: “Domestic Violence” on encyclopedia.com

This claim has been proven to be false.



  1. This website is a treasure-trove. Thanks for compiling these texts.

    I have a question though about the "rule of thumb" - in this post you say it's a feminist hoax, yet in another post on this site - "A Word for Men's Rights" (1856) there is a mention of a similar rule, but finger-width rather than thumb-width:

    "Accordingly, the law and usage of England authorized the husband to chastise his wife—in a moderate manner—employing for that purpose a rod not thicker than his finger."

    Could you clarify and expand upon this myth?

    Frankie Q

    1. Yes. I will have to go into detail on this problem. What makes this "rule of thumb" claim a hoax, in the view of those who have traced its history, is how the Blackstone reference to a purported archaic common law observation got translated in recent decades into a claim such as this: "Rule of thumb laws were on the books until recently" (quoting, approximately, from memory) according to Westlaw (before their editors removed that claim following my query requesting they cite a single law of that sort that was "on the books" either as statute or affirmed in case law).

    2. FrankieQ– Wasn’t there a custom that allowed a wife to shoot her husband with a gun having a barrel bore into which her thumb wouldn’t fit?

  2. Excellent work. Your research is impeccable and very detailed. This brings to light the truth behind the lies

    .I believe that one of the best weapons against this senseless cycle of violence is education. Spreading public awareness on the facts and myths behind this critical issue.

    Launched for the National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Story of Anna Lynn Hurd is available as a free download at http://ow.ly/pnBaG. This eBook about a 16 year old victim of domestic violence contains crucial information on what to do when trapped inside a violent relationship and actions to take when you know someone caught in the bondage of domestic violence.

  3. I think. that the cause of such behavior may be constant stress or mental disorders. In any case, I can recommend the site https://westcoastsupply.cc/product/do-si-dos/ which helps to choose an excellent solution for relaxation and dealing with stress, as well as various mental disorders. I am sure that many people should try medical cannabis strains in order to get rid of unreasonable aggression and then you will understand that life in peace is wonderful.
