With around a woman each week in Australia being killed by a partner or ex-partner, it’s impossible to deny that there’s an issue in this country with domestic abuse. How to tackle it? The first thing is to be educated about it, and this is an excellent book to start. It’s a hard read, of course, especially the anecdotes, but so very important. I think it would be good for every politician to read this, and then anyone who advises them, anyone who works in care, in education, in health… well, really, everyone. We need change.
