Why do we hurt the ones we love?

Journalists Brinley Duggan and Freia Lily explore domestic violence, and why Australia is unable to prevent it. This conversation isn’t new. These statistics aren’t new. But perhaps we need to review how we approach it because, clearly, what we are doing isn’t enough.

We would like to thank Carol and Justin for their contributions to this compilation.

We would also like to note the following information was compiled with support from a domestic violence expert who detailed the areas of most pressing concern.
