Waleed Aly slams the Government for not spending more to prevent violence against women. Show me the money.
But one group that failed to rate a mention in the Treasurer’s budget speech? Victims of domestic violence.
Unlike our politicians though, host of The Project Waleed Aly did not forget the thousands of Australian women suffering at the hands of their partners and on tonight’s episode of the show, he issued his audience with a powerful message.

“I’d like to put my hand up on behalf of a group of Australians who might be unable to or are too afraid to, or when they do ask for help, they’re too often turned away,” he said.
“I’m talking about Australian women, who are regularly beaten, abused and killed by Australian men, usually their partners.”
