25% chance of being a victim of Domestic Violence Crimes! Yay! Domestic Violence is New Zealand’s growth industry! Women and children have a 25% chance of being injured, killed, assaulted or abducted in DV incidents in New Zealand!

Safety of Children

Fri 23rd November 2012:

Masculine Empire by Peter Adams – Book Launch

Judging by the list of organisations supporting this book, I doubt that it is intended as an instruction manual, so don’t get too excited.
