There's a palpable "detached arrogance" that prevails amongst the upper echelons of social services in the UK. This invariably trickles down to the effectiveness of overworked social workers on the 'frontline' and manifests itself in tragic cases such as Baby P.
Whilst I'd admit a lot of cases where abuse was obvious, and then not acted upon - was due to gross negligence, incompetence and bad management practices. However, given that feminism has a undeniable stronghold within social services itself, I'd assert a number of cases where mothers are abusing, they are deliberately ignored by caseworkers, up to managers, whose allegiance is to feminism first, children second.
Also, there's been many documented stories (worldwide) where social workers assigned to women's shelters have turned a blind eye to women abusing their children. Who else is going to report the child abuse? The feminist mafia running the shelter?

Yes, that "someone" being mostly their mothers. Do you think they would have hesitated to specify the gender in repeated print if fathers were the biggest murderers?Disclosing that 55 children or babies were murdered by someone who knew them last year, the report said that 200,000 still live in homes where there is a high risk of abuse or domestic violence.
Why aren't these physically abused and murdered children "officially" recognised as domestic violence victims then? Answer: because women are the worst perpetrators of it!
Think about it. Is it not violence? Yes. Is it not violence committed within a domestic setting? Yes. Therefore one must logically conclude that the act is domestic violence.
