“I believe you”: The most powerful thing to tell a woman trying to escape violence

You may be aware that today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. It is the 16th year the day has been observed, around the world, on November 25, as designated by the United Nations General Assembly in 1999.

The issue remains as critical today as ever. Sixty-eight people have died as a result of violence against women in Australia this year. That is more than one person a week, and that is just fatalities.
