During the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 and during the Revolutions of 1989 , protesters often attacked and took down sculptures and images of Joseph Stalin , such as the Stalin Monument in Budapest .  The fall of communism in 1989 was also followed by the destruction or removal of statues of Vladimir Lenin and other Communist leaders in the former Soviet Union and in other Eastern Bloc countries. Particularly well-known was the destruction of " Iron Felix ", the statue of Felix Dzerzhinsky outside the KGB 's headquarters. Another statue of Dzerzhinsky was destroyed in a Warsaw square that was named after him during communist rule , but which is now called Bank Square .
The term has historically been synonymous with men's violence against their intimate female partners. In Queensland law, for example, domestic violence originally referred only to intimate partner violence. In Tasmanian legislation, family violence refers only to partner violence. But when the advocacy group 'One in Three' claims that one in three victims of domestic violence are male, it's referring to domestic and family violence, and not only intimate partner violence. Other campaigners will often quote the ' one in three ' without reference to family violence at all.
