Domestic & Family Violence Forum – PSFaNS Sue Pollock

Untitled Design (11)
Sue Pollock from Port Stephens Family and Neighbourhood Services joined Interrelate and The Smith Family – Communities for Children (Raymond Terrace and Karuah) in a forum to share her insights on domestic violence trends across the recent period.
Sue also talks about how she aims to promote the prevention of DFV and increase the personal agency of women and children.
Sue and PSFANS believe that one of the main reasons that DFV happens is due to gender-based inequality. One of the issues with this is the current way people use language to blame the victim for the acts of the perpetrator, such as: “We talk about how many girls were harassed last year, not how many men harassed girls”
