Why is violence against women endemic, and how do we stop it?

Every two minutes, police are called to a family violence matter. Every week, a woman is killed by a current or former partner.

This is Australia's national emergency.

Violence against women is preventable. It is not an inevitable part of the human condition. It is time to create a new normal. It is time to stop the slaughter in our suburbs.
