Jacinta Price, who himself had been in a violent relationship, said that demonizing men did nothing to address the issue of attacks on women by their husbands and boyfriends.

& # 39; There is always poisonous masculinity & # 39 ;, she told the ABC's The Drum program on Wednesday evening.

& # 39; Where do young men feel fit now if they are not valued as the male gender? & # 39;

Mrs. Price, a mother of four boys and a Alice Springs city council member, said men were under sufficient pressure.

& # 39; As a society we have a lot of pressure on our men in general, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; As the mother of four sons, I find it very important that everyone understands that they have a place in society, no matter what happens. & # 39;

Ms. Price is married to Scotland-born musician Colin Lillie and has played in vain as a candidate for a national liberal party during this year's federal elections.

She reached a 2.8 percent swing against former Labor member Warren Snowdon in the vast outback Northern Territory electorate of Lingiari.

Jacinta Price spoke in March The Weekend Australian Magazine about surviving domestic violence in 2008, when she was previously in a new relationship.

She needed stitches after she threw a light at her.

Her latest comments about & # 39; toxic masculinity & # 39; were made after feminist writer Clementine Ford slammed Studio 10 personality Joe Hildebrand because he claimed that not all men are to blame for violence against women.

Hildebrand had the suggestion of & # 39; the nonsensical & # 39; Victorian Assistant Police Commissioner Luke Cornelius that violence against women & # 39;the behavior of men is not about the behavior of women. & # 39;

Police Chief Commander commented on the death of Courtney Herron, 25, who on Saturday became the fourth young woman to be killed in a public place in Melbourne in less than a year.

Hildebrand said that equating violence with masculinity and broadly blaming all men would do nothing to deter perpetrators from violence.

& # 39; I don't see how I think about myself will prevent women from being beaten or killed & # 39 ;, he told Network Ten's morning show this week.

Ford responded with one 10 daily column with the argument that emphasizing male behavior was not about blaming all men.

& # 39; Shifting the story from women's behavior to men's is not about blaming all men for the actions of a few & # 39 ;, she said.

& # 39; It's about recognizing that the actions of some come from the culture of a gender-unequal world where men are overwhelmingly the beneficiaries. & # 39;

A year ago, the suicide prevention group removed Lifeline Ford as a keynote speaker after tweeting & # 39; kill all men & # 39; and & # 39; all men must die & # 39 ;.
