  • Shining a light on the scourge of family violence

    In Australia, one woman is killed every nine days by a current or former partner, and one in six women has experienced physical or sexual violence from a current or former partner. Behind these statistics are the stories of the survivors, who can experience serious and long-lasting impacts on their health, wellbeing, education, relationships, and housing outcomes.
