Domestic violence has been a major issue in our country and across the world. Lately too much domestic abuse has resulted in the loss of two women only recently and in my building. Our goal is to increase the sentences/punishment the abuser receives when sent to court for their horrific and cowardly actions. No woman should live in fear especially when we live in 2021. I believed that the justice system by now would have created a way to control these heinous crimes but we have been let down by the people we elect to help prevent these types of fear In our community full of law enforcement. The quote I'm about to write is from the Guardian and this was when we decided to try anything to help these women who can not help themselves.

"Case numbers increase dramatically and frontline workers say support services are struggling to help those in need"

"In 2020 48 women died due to domestic violence."

Following is quoted by the Australian government welfare Institute.

"Family, domestic and sexual violence is a major national health and welfare issue that can have lifelong impacts for victims and perpetrators. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2016 Personal Safety Survey, 2.2 million Australians have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from a partner and 3.6 million Australians have experience emotional abuse from a partner. About 2.2 million Australians have experience sexual violence since the age of 15."

This is where our system is going wrong and I believe it should be on the desks of many officials to figure out a way for women to be safe not only in our community but our Homes!
