A Universal Problem
I must recommend an excellent post by Australian family lawyer Stephen Page (left) of the Australian Divorce Blog. The post is a transcript of a speech he gave for CEO Challenge, a program of partnerships between the business sector and the community to respond to domestic violence. Entitled "25 years of acting for survivors of domestic violence", the speech recalls Stephen's experiences acting for victims of domestic violence (including the danger he has himself faced) and how the response to domestic violence has improved over that time. Domestic violence is a universal problem, and this post is a must-read for family lawyers and others who deal with the problem, wherever they are.
