Domestic violence against women in Australia is a growing crisis. One in four women will experience domestic violence in this country during their lifetime, and an average of one woman a week is murdered at the hands of their partner. Professor Sarah Wendt, Matthew Flinders Fellow and Professor in Social Work at Flinders University, can’t understand why there isn’t more urgency being shown to curb this disturbing situation – but she is leading research that strives to identify why men use violence against women and children.
Professor Sarah Wendt explores this topic in an article in Encounter Magazine (page 24).
