70% of unprovoked domestic violence is by women

" A new Harvard Medical School study of 11,000 men and women has confirmed the CDC’s data and found that 50% of Domestic Violence was reciprocal. But the study also found that when violence was one-sided, meaning unprovoked, 70% of the time it was the women who committed violence against the men."

Reciprocal and Nonreciprocal Intimate Partner Violence,”
