Who are the perpetrators of violence against women?

Many women and children are abused by people that they know. Husbands, partners, brothers, fathers, boyfriends. There are no barriers in terms of race, ethnicity or age in relation to those who perpetrate violence against women.

The following film entitled ‘Do You See Her’ use the ordinary , the everyday to challenge some of the myths that surround gender-based violence – it only happens, in centre social groups; it is easy to detect when someone is being abused; it’s not that serious; it’s ‘only’ a slap.

Please be advised that some participants may find some of the scenes in this video to be distressing.

Watch ‘Do You See Her’.
