"There's a whole dam of research, in America, and I'm hoping that this kind of 'dam' will burst, and that we'll clear away this -- what feels really outdated -- this approach [to batterer intervention programs]. It's based on a political ideology, a feminist ideology, and the outcomes don't support the program... In any other field -- if it was education, if it was health -- and these programs were performing so poorly, people would be asking questions about why are we spending public money on this. But it's almost politically incorrect to question it."
