Chloe Shorten: The murder of Gold Coast mum, Teresa Bradford, is a horrific reminder that family violence needs to be stopped

In homes with children, family violence is child abuse.

According to a 2016 Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety report, around three-quarters of a million women had children in their care when they experienced violence. More than 75 per cent of these women confirmed that their children either saw or heard the violence.

Changes need to be made to the Family Court but in the interim, we see the scourge of family violence rising.

While the system is not being fixed, it is putting children in harm’s way.
