Thought you ladies might want to read this article by the Victorian police commissioner. It's quite good, made me think...

Domestic violence/violence against women

That is a really good piece. I do hope that Chief Lay has a very strong line on this matter with his officers because police services around the world have been known to have abuse of power, particularly with women in custody.
Thanks for sharing VP.

Good message there. It's a good start to a complicated and gradual process of bringing family violence and violence against women to light.
As a child who grew up in a situation where at times I feared for my mother's (and my siblings) lives I can not underestimate the effect it has on children also - it changes who you are and your whole life. Still, not a day goes by that I don't think about it on some level. I went wild in my late teens/early 20's and it took a long time to get back on track, with NO support because no-one knew. We came from a GOOD family, went to private schools, how dare we complain.
I hope oped it becomes a discussion point amongst people in this country. It's a complicated issue but talking about it is a good start, and that includes involving children in the discussion.

Great article & something that has been bothering me lately. We need tougher laws & more support for victims to come forward.
