In the last few years I have noticed that men have become abusive towards women. It is not only in one race but in all. What is the explanation of this behavior?

I don't think men have all of a sudden become abusive. There has always been a lot of abuse. Perhaps it is becoming more visible.... more women are talking now instead of keeping it a secret.
Probably the biggest reason for abuse a huge amount of pent up anger. Individuals are more likely to be abusive if they themselves have been abused.
