LO­CALS LAUNCH CAM­PAIGN TO CRIM­I­NALISE DO­MES­TIC VI­O­LENCE

Whitsunday Times - - YOUR SAY -

Max­ine Thiele:

Talk­ing with peo­ple dur­ing the Zonta In­ter­na­tional 16 Days of Ac­tivism cam­paign of aware­ness of vi­o­lence to­ward women, many peo­ple are not aware do­mes­tic vi­o­lence is not a crim­i­nal of­fence.

I sin­cerely hope you have suc­cess, ladies.

There is still that “it’s their busi­ness” when re­fer­ring to vi­o­lence in the home.

Maybe the word “do­mes­tic” needs to be re­moved. It is sim­ply vi­o­lence and as­sault.
