  1. This Program is so accurate that watching it took me Back to the Abusive Relationship I got out of 14yrs ago.
    My Husband Strangled me and the only reason I survived was because someone else was Present. In Court He got off the Charges there was no Justice or Accoutability.
    I lost all the Mutual friends as they stood by Him. When there was a Second Incident the Police advised me to let it go as the result would be the same in Court as the last time.
    Time and again I hear Stories of Survival from victims of all Genders and not much has Changed the Abusers still seem to get away with it in many cases with little to no consequences.
    I don’t know what the answer is to this issue that touches all levels of Society.

  2. I was told by a female, Qld police officer, “If you keep calling the police, Child Services will take your children away.”

    I stopped calling the police.

    I am a 40y/o educated, professional caucasian woman who, in front of my abusive husband, was told the above. I was isolated, suffering at the hands of my abuser and terrified to ever call police again. That female police officer gave my abuser even more control than he previously had. I was trapped.

    Australia needs:
    • police that are trained to recognise non-physical DV and coercive control
    • an holistic support team to help women escape their abuser (practical help including psychologists, child-minders while police take statements and lawyers to provide legal advice, accomodation – UK, Scotland and Buenos Aires have this!).

    The Australian system is failing women.
    And women are dying every week.

    Absolutely blown away by this series. The abuse and failing of the system is phenomenal.
    You keep saying Domestic Abuse. Not to take away from the fact that this is predominantly male to female, but the Domestic Abuse spotlight also needs to be shone on the LGBT community. And there is also female to male abuse.
    I was the victim of a gay partner abusing me. After being bashed the police arrived; they said “Oh this is just 2 guys beating each other up” and left without letting me file a formal complaint.
    There is a long way to go in All aspects of our society.
    Well done with this series.
