To the men who think they own the women and children in their lives, and feel they have the right to manipulate, bully, threaten, and physically injure or murder them, your actions will have a permanent and damaging impact on your vulnerable partner and children. If your life and relationship are not working for you, don’t blame your family and make them pay. Your frustration is not their fault or their responsibility to fix.

As a survivor of domestic violence I would like to recommend that if a woman has been brave enough to seek help for domestic violence, then she has just put herself and her children at much great danger, and this should send a red alert that they need immediate and long-term protection from a dangerous perpetrator of domestic violence.

Until this is enforced we will continue to sadly see children losing their mothers and mothers losing their children
