Any woman, man, child or young person can be abused regardless of age, disability, sexual orientation, nationality or background. Recognising what is happening to you, or has happened in the past, is the first step in escaping the pain and misery of domestic violence.
Women’s Aid Northern Ireland is taking part in the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence, beginning today on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and ending on 10 December, International Human Rights Day. This year, the focus of the 16 Days is on militarism, the link between small arms possession and violence against women, and institutionalised state violence, themes of particular relevance to women in Northern Ireland.
