This was posted by Jakki Pransky today. She lives in England. Domestic violence is an international problem and too frequently the abuser does not get punished sufficiently due to the lack of understanding of the dynamics of domestic violence. This petition began with the signature of the 1 person who initiated it. There are now over 56,000 signatures! Intelligence and/or a network of friends does not protect a woman or man from an abuser.
The comment asks why am I signing this petition. Does that question even need to be asked? My god, that in itself is a tragedy.
