I think malicious women with little to no conscience and women who are mentally ill make up the majority of the people who make these kinds of INTENTIONAL false accusations. With both types of perpetrators there is very little we can do to actually prevent their crimes. We don't punish the mentally ill the same way we would someone who is not mentally ill, with good reason. And, punishing the sociopath is completely appropriate but it does little as a crime deterrent. That being said, anyone who intentionally breaks the law (who is capable of appreciating that what they did was wrong)- should be legally sanctioned as appropriate to the situation.
Many false accusations stem from mistaken identity. I don't think the victim should be punished for making an honest mistake.
I agree that the social prevalence and specific presence of misogyny on the part of the falsely-accused may well play a part in an act of revenge against the abusive man. Ironically, the anti-feminist would have you believe that it such situations the foundation is actually misandry. Are there women who hate men? Yes. Are they blameless for their hate? I think that people of either gender and from whatever background, have a responsibility to seek psychological help for hatred that strong. I do not mean to leave the reader with the idea that all crimes against men (abusive or not) are excusable because of existing misogyny. I don't personally believe that. I agree with misogyny might be a contributing factor in some cases, but like you, I'd stop short of calling it an EXCUSE.
