Stop peddling low-brow ****, you have descended into an ignorant & degenerate abyss
As are deaths by car accidents, suicide, ****** cancer, bowel cancer, (various other cancers) and particularly cardio-vascular disease which kills around 40,000 Australians a year, fairly evenly split between men and women. There are any number of factors impacting on female mortality a great deal more than DV.
Your pathetic and desperate DV advocacy (at apparently any cost) reveals a glaring lack of intelligence, and sad attachment to pseudo feminist ideology which does a great disservice to women in particular and the community generally.
You are just another unhappy female, blaming everything and everyone but yourself for your own shortcomings and miserable life.
I'm sure you, like many others of your ilk, consider Ms Batty as a fabulous advocate for women's rights and a sensational anti-DV campaigner. I would suggest that she got her current gig as a direct result of the tragic murder of her son. Her highly dysfunctional family experience is very untypical, although we are led to believe, through highly exaggerated and false "pay-back" rhetoric, that it is common place. People with highly untypical life experience ought not to be preaching to others about the "tsunami" or "plague" of DV. The only plague or tsunami in this regard, is to be found in the media and various other advocacy groups/individuals with vested interests.
You'll save a great many women's lives if you advocate: eating less, drinking less, doing more light exercise, taking less prescription & pharmacy drugs, taking less recreational drugs, and consuming much less media disinformation. It is very seductive for women to believe the garbage on mainstream/social media re. female empowerment, female rights and interest, etc....but it has simply become an industry, a marketplace, where women are encouraged to aspire to and achieve a whole series of highly unrealistic things. Women are being ripped off by the current feminist movement and associated markets. Surveys show women are now less satisfied with their lives than in previous years. They are encouraged by the media and various advocates to blame men for this situation, however, it is feminism & media that is the root cause. The media has for decades been conditioning both men and women in western societies to pursue interests/activities that will engender the decline of society.
Thus, we eat too much, drink too much, don't take enough exercise, take too many prescription & recreational drugs, and at the same time a strange and extreme form of feminism is promoted, as well the promotion of homosexuality.
The health, social, and moral decline of western populations is being encouraged for various reasons, one of which is that it is very big business indeed, hence the food/beverage and pharmaceutical industries are making incredible sums of money from our decline. They don't care if we get fat, they just want to make money. And when we do get fat, the media promotes a whole range of drugs to help us out, so even more money is made. And so it goes on.
DV is simply one relatively small symptom of the broader systemic decline of western civilisation. And when you look at the statistics, DV is an extremely long way behind preventable deaths from cardio-vascular disease, a long way behind various cancers, and even well behind suicide and car accidents.
The DV media-debate is entirely out of perspective because it has been hi-jacked and politicised by the feminist lobby. Essentially, the so-called debate is simply a platform for attacking the male gender. Where is the discussion on increased levels of female violence against both children and men (do I need to mention several recent cases, one up in northern Australia with eight children killed)?
These things are seldom, if ever, discussed in the media because it doesn't fit the feminist agenda of "the victim female" and "those bad men." The so-called media/political debate is categorically a pathetic media "beat-up" of the male gender.
The ****-peddlers have emerged from the shadowy dark, they peddle their falsehoods to create new markets, and they make a great deal of money at the expense of women, men, children & society generally.
As I said, the health, social & moral decline of western societies is very big business indeed.
David Baxter commented
You are so right about this....when you objectively view comparative statistics for female mortality rates in Australia, DV is absolutely miniscule as a cause. Preventable heart disease kills 20,000 women a year in particular, various cancers kill women in the thousands, even suicide and car accidents cause many more female deaths than DV. These fundamental facts are never discussed, because they do not fit the message/agenda of the highly emotive feminist advocates.
I particularly enjoyed your following comment on Ms Rose Batty/Anti DV Advocate & Campaigner:
"...I would suggest that she (Ms Batty) got her current gig as a direct result of the tragic murder of her son. Her highly dysfunctional family experience is very untypical, although we are led to believe, through highly exaggerated and false "pay-back" rhetoric, that it is common place.

I agree 100%, but it seems the media is in a woeful state of "groupthink," where the dangerously skewed agenda continues to be promoted to the lasting detriment of women, men, children and society generally. It's as if the feminised media & associated DV advocates are seeking to create the "problem" that they say they want to address. There is, undoubtedly, a lot of media/advocate oil being thrown on a very small fire. Strange forces are at work, one might think.
