Where can abuse victims go?

We Should All Pass The Mic

by Mandu Reid 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some have hailed the Covid-19 crisis as ‘a great leveller.’ I thought this was nonsense from the beginning. Instead, I see this virus and the havoc it has reaped as ‘a great revealer’. It has brought into even sharper focus how deeply unequal our society is. It’s forced us to recognise how interconnected we all are and how vulnerable our whole society is when those who need support most are denied it, and denied a voice.
