Last week more women lost their lives at the hands of their violent partners.
Last week we had a Prime Minister who said “enough is enough” and that action not words was what was needed.
Last week one high profile television presenter asked Tony Abbott to step down as the Minister for Women: where to now?
This week we have a new Prime Minister who earlier this year said “…there is zero tolerance for men hitting women” whilst defending a budget that would provide just over half the funds needed for an awareness program to confront the issue 
The members of CWA of NSW, like every other rational Australian, are not interested in waiting for the dust to settle in the ‘cock-fight’ pen before we find out what our national government is prepared to actually DO for those in violent relationships or at risk of same.
We are raising funds to support the 1800RESPECT help and support line because 18,000 calls went unanswered last year.
In NSW we are funding personal development courses for health professionals and community workers in rural and regional centres because that’s where, per capita, the most domestic violence attacks occur.
This week’s antics should not be allowed to take precedence over last week’s horrors.
