Our thanks to a regular referrer of interesting articles for pointing us to this piece in the Independent. Kelly Brook – who I believe is a not unattractive celebrity, famous for something, I’m sure – physically assaulted two former partners. Can you guess the gender of the journalist who wrote the piece? Of course you can. Why do papers employ so many female journalists? Maybe they save money, given the gender pay gap, so they make higher profits.
It’s always good to see media exposure given to the estimable Mark Brooks of Mankind Initiative, but this piece – like almost all newspaper pieces on Intimate Partner Violence – contains a number of inaccuracies, as do the comments from Sandra Horley, Chief Executive of Refuge. We plan to publicly challenge Ms Horley about those comments in coming days.
