As a DFV caseworker for an NGO I am sad to say I agree with much of the article. A good portion of my work involves advocating for victim-survivors with the police. It’s so excruciating and frustrating that some of those who “serve and protect” need to be convinced to do so.
So disappointed. But not surprised.
We have to keep saying this, screaming this until we are heard and REAL change is made. When is enough enough?
25 November started 16 Days of Activism for Violence Against Women. As of 28 November I believe two more women, Catiuscia, and an unnamed woman in her 90s, have died as a result of violence. Enough is enough!
Just another example of violence against women. Yes, I know there are male nurses, many excellent ones, but nursing is predominantly seen as a female profession.
Thank you. I didn’t know about this page. I will tell my friends about it too.
There is one single question every single woman in Australia must ask. We must ask our politicians. We must ask our magistrates. We must ask our police. And we must ask our men.
Thank you for the sensible and objective article. As an adult with ADHD I can assure you that is it very hard to get medication ‘Willy Nilly’. I pay to see a psychiatrist twice a year which is a huge cost, but I know that I would never have been able to complete a bachelor’s degree or have the complex and satisfying job that I have without it.
I loved the movie, so much to unpack, but one moment for me was an absolute letdown.
"Stronach maintains that Brown has handled the fame much better than she ever could"
One of my favourite actors
@twodogs I'm genuinely interested in what Aboriginal causes and programs Ms Rinehart supports.
@yeahyepyes I've had a wide variety of different bahn mi, I would happily pay more for premium ingredients and cooking techniques
"For context, Marin is a married mother of one, whose husband was not in attendance nor shown in the footage."
An absolute musical icon. Babooshka, Wuthering Heights and Running up that Hill are long time favourites of mine.
@cminchin42 I agree. CBT is not suitable for BPD. DBT, dialectic behavioural therapy is the treatment recommended
Wait, so I don't have to voted where I'm enrolled?
This reminds me of an older male colleague who would constantly text me -please give me a call - instead of just calling me himself! Not quite weaponised incompetence but almost.
My experience; I had a wonderful church family who were my whole world. When I separated from my husband I couldn't face going to church when he was still there.
