There is an alarmingly high rate of violence against women and children in Australia. Whilst men are also affected by domestic violence, its victims are overwhelmingly women and their children, and its perpetrators are profusely men. As we saw in a viral video posted on Saturday night, women (or in this case, teenage girls) are not only affected by violence in their private lives, but also in public. What do you think LiveTribers? How can we educate Australians to better react in highly volatile, violent situations?
