The weather was challenging, but not as challenging as the issues facing victims and survivors of domestic violence. It was heart warming to see how many people braved the unseasonable weather conditions to walk together with us to raise greater awareness of the growing incidence of domestic violence with statistics indicating 1 in 3 women suffer from some form of abuse in their lifetime.
Our warrior and Founder Glyn Scott was featured in The Weekend Australian (page 25 of the Magazine) on the 21 May 2016. The Weekend Australian interviewed Glyn about her extraordinary and sad story of endless beatings and rape at the hands of her husband at the time. Glyn is a survivor and has lived through horrific domestic violence to become the amazingly strong and driven person that she is today. The story in The Australian calls Glyn an "Unlikely Warrior." Due to a suppression order, Glyn's identity until now been unknown. Glyn made Australian legal history after suffering years of hardship and pain.
