A month a go I attended a #DVForum on Domestic Violence in Australia, thanks to The Nappy Collective – read original post here. I met some inspiring people on the night – Rosie Batty, Giaan Rooney and Detective Superintendent Rod Jouning.
In honour of women all around Australia, especially after the recent events with the murder of teenager Masa Vukotic, who was innocently walking through a park. And facts that have surfaced about Adrian Bayley, who murdered Jill Meagher I want to share basic facts EVERY Australian should know about domestic violence.

- They are wealthy
