At least 62 women have been killed this year from violence, according to the Counting Dead Women project run by the feminist organisation Destroy The Joint. Eight more women have been murdered at this point in 2018 compared with 2017.

The people charged with their deaths include their husbands, partners, ex-partners, sons, relatives, acquaintances and strangers. Sometimes their own children and grandchildren were killed with them.

What kind of father do you want to be? What kind of husband? What kind of man do you want to be?”
This is at the heart of the solution.

Excessive use of alcohol and drugs probably play some part in all this.

Yes this does need to be addressed. This involves each and every one of us. Teach our children what RESPECT AND EMPATHY AND VALUES FOR ANOTHER PERSON.

Educating from a very young age in classrooms. Having safe places for women to that will remove their children from the toxic role modelling.

Mental health issues addressed early. Parents need more education on how to raise kids especially boys. Boys are more sensitive than girls yet man handled and taught not to have their emotions"toughen up" is what i heard one father said to his 3 year old who'd fallen off a skate board the other day . Sad to hear and see.

I think this issue doesn't need to be solved in 20 years when these boys are men we need to solve it now.
