How Common Is Family Violence In Australia?
Estimations now have it that family violence is prevalent in Australia. The problem is endemic, with women often suffering a whole lot as a result of the violence. Figures reveal that women are eight times more likely to be a victim of family violence in Australia. In the same manner, women also suffer a great deal from their male partners due to family violence. Further evidence shows that women are often admitted more to emergency departments in hospitals. This goes to show the rate at which family violence is predominant in Australia and how women suffer a lot with regard to this. There is a pressing need to address the issue and provide adequate channels to report incidences and protect victims of family violence.
Safety is an important part of existence. There must be adequate protection, which is a job of the government, as well as the communities. Through a collaborative effort, family violence can be dealt a great blow and those found wanting can be brought to justice. The aim of our initiatives is to ensure a society free from violence and where people can have rights without them being threatened by anyone.
