Let's stop domestic violence

Let's stop domestic violence

I have joined WE in the hope that together we can challenge the way the world - by and large - treats and views women. We can be under the illusion that feminism is no longer needed now we have all and sundry paying lip service to equality in their party or corporate rhetoric, or believing that getting drunk and bedding some bloke is liberated. Sadly, we are possibly more enslaved than ever before because we are deluded into thinking that we have achieved liberation or even equality. Violence against women is something I feel particularly passionate about. Since I fisrt learned with real horror (I must come from a sheltered background) that 60%of women in the country where I was then working suffered domestic violence on a regular basis. How shocking it was to me to realise so many people could not even feel safe in their own homes! I suspect a similar number is women in this country are victims of this too often hidden and ignored horror. I want to do something to stop it. Help me, sisters.
