When a woman is subjected to violence by her partner, she will be in the future entitled to free psykologtimer.
But when a man is exposed to exactly the same, he gets zero free hours.
The proposal has the government's backing, from both the Alternative, Enhedslisten, SF and the radical, and thus is the majority secured, when the law is finally adopted on Thursday.
But it is totally clear discrimination, believes the association Live free of Violence.
- We are very baffled by why men don't get the same right as women. It is clear discrimination, says secretary Lev Without Violence Its Gregersen.
- All should be equal before the law, but it is men and women is not here, she says.
She backed up in the criticism in the responses to the consultation from a series of other organisations such as the Institute for human Rights, Offerrådgivningen in Denmark and the Council for the Socially Disadvantaged.
And thus implements the red block discrimination, with an open forehead.

Ekstra Bladet has asked social affairs minister Astrid Krag about why a woman, who for example is being beaten down with a frying pan, can get free psychological help, while a man who gets beaten down with a frying pan, don't get anything.
- We provide ten hours of assistance to the people at the shelters, and it is not for men, says Astrid Krag.
- But violence is violence, so why can men not get the same help as the women, if they are exposed to the same?
- It is significantly more men than women are exposed to violence in their homes, and often it is also rougher violence.
Violence is violence, we agree on it?
- It is in fact not entirely true. Men are at greater risk of being exposed to violence on the streets, while women are more exposed in the home.
- the logic to be men who are knocked down on the street, well then have more help than women? Why should men and women do not have the same help, if they are exposed to the same?
- However, violence is not just violence. Women are typically exposed to rougher violence, thrown down stairs, thrown furniture on you, says Astrid Krag.
- It can a man also be, but he will not help ...
- But I would very much like to discuss more help for men, but it will require that we were doing something outside of the herbergsområdet.
- It would in short require some commitment, so should it be with the clauses probably solve itself. Why can a man who gets thrown a piece of furniture in your head, don't get the same help as a woman who makes it?
- It is a different section for battered men, but I would like to discuss it. I think when we are finished with it here yet.
- So you like men to be entitled to ten hours of free psychological support just like women?
- I take very much like a discussion of it here.
- But do you do a bill about it. You can reach it yet.
- Now, I'm taking this discussion with the political parties, not with the Extra Leaf. Nor do I believe that I have so much funding into forhandlingslokalet, says the minister of social affairs.
According to the government was 38.000 women exposed to violence by their partner in 2017. But the same did 19.000 men.
At Lev Without Violence, provides not much for the minister's explanation, that you can't help men in the same way as women, because they are in the shelters.
- of course, one would be able to equate men and women on this area, if you really wanted it, says Its Gregersen.
