Our thanks to Sean for this. As always with stories on domestic abuse, the piece was written by a female journalist, the stock photograph at the top of the piece is of an abused woman, and claims of abuse are always taken to be based on fact, because women never lie – so men are deemed automatically guilty and having to prove their innocence, which is generally impossible.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
