Women and a lifetime of men’s violence

March 31, 2021by Jane Gilmore

I wrote a piece which brings together the data on women’s lifetime experience of men’s violence. Links to data sources are all in the article, which you can find on The New Daily website: The numbers Scott Morrison just can’t seem to comprehend.

This is what the data looks like. It’s important to note that these are broad averages, women and non-binary people in the LGBTQIA+ community, people with disabilities, and First Nations people all suffer higher rates of violence than anyone else.

FixedIt is an ongoing project to push back against the media’s constant erasure of violent men and blaming of innocent victims. If you would like to help fund it – even $5 a month makes a big difference – please consider becoming a Patron
