This wasn't intended to be one-sided. But it does pertain to abusive men and women who allow that behavior. It might be possible to work the book in a role reversal. The author, himself, was an abusive husband and he speaks from his own experience and then from extensive study that he has conducted. . . and programs that actually work. The book turns out to have such useful programs suggested that some domestic violence courts are using the author's programs to help these men (who really DO want help).
I'm also sorry that you were abused. . . and I agree that some women can be such scornful creatures that the emotional abuse they inflict is worse than any physical abuse.
There may be some resource available on the topic of women abusing men in the Depression Resources. I haven't noticed any in particular . . . but might be worth a peek. It is the second topic in the forum.
Thank you for your observation.
