Shine a light on violence against women: trapped between violence and homelessness
On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, peak body for homelessness services, Homelessness Australia, is embarking on a 16 day campaign to shine a light on violence against women."Domestic violence is a leading driver of homelessness in Australia," CEO of Homelessness Australia, Glenda Stevens, said. "It is the single largest reason people access homelessness services. Domestic violence is complex – a large number of people experiencing it will never seek help."
