What happened to Tara Moss and many others is very disturbing and its good that she is now going to assist in the prevention off this violent act . its also disturbing that Australia is the 3rd highest per capital of population in the world for rape and that 1 in 3 women will be physically or sexually assaulted ! I teach my male students to respect women and that we are the protectors and real men don’t commit violence.
I have written to Prime Minister Tony Abbott who is also the minister for women asking for Government support offering a free 4 week self protection course for every woman and child and it was not considered as they say they fund counselling and other services. The response was not signed by him so I wonder if he actually read it ?
Prevention is better than cure and domestic violence costs Australia 13.6 Billion dollars a year and the solution is that women learn how to physically protect themselves and the other is to ban alcohol fro people who perpetrate violence .
