PowerPoint: Violence Does Not Stop at the Bedroom Door

Greater public attention on domestic violence has highlighted the huge numbers of women victimised by male violence in our community, and encouraged many service and systemic responses and interventions. However, this has also shown the pervasiveness of control and the need for a deeper understanding of the issues for our most vulnerable. This session examined: emerging local and international research and analysis in the understanding of reproductive coercion as a deliberate strategy of control; and the impact of homelessness on women’s wellbeing through their experiences of both survival sex and pregnancy. Katherine, along with Liz and Juliet discussed the need for improved individual and systemic interventions, policy, and research, to best support women to be safe and live free from violence and control.
