Deadly Pattern of Domestic Violence
The Red Rose Foundation is producing a short video on identifying the deadly pattern of domestic violence. On average, 2 women are murdered each week in Australia as a result of domestic violence. These deaths are described as the most predictable of all homicides. We hope the short video will provide increased awareness on recognising the signs of increased harm and risk. By learning and understanding the dynamics frequently present in abusive relationships, we as friends, family, community and service personnel, can support women and children to be safe. Ultimately we aim to help change the ending for victims of domestic violence. We are pleased to have the support of award winning Australian producer and director Megan Doneman and Channel 7 veteran journalist and newsreader, Kay McGrath. The 5-7 minute video will feature various people (including victims of domestic violence as well as those who assist victims of domestic violence), discussing the patterns leading up to and the possible preventions of domestic violence related deaths. This will be intercut with a classical ballet dance sequence depicting the various stages of a domestic violence relationship, from romance to the possible tragic end. It’s the ending we hope to change. We would greatly appreciate your support, please consider supporting our GoFundMe campaign below.
