Summary "Thirty years ago, the New South Wales Task Force on Domestic Violence identified domestic violence as ;a deep-seated national problem'. Advertising campaigns in the intervening years have advised us to say no' to violence and explained where, if we experienced domestic violence, we could get assistance. However, we know that domestic violence has not been eliminated. Today, around a third of women experience violence from their partner, but has violence been reduced? What policies and programs have been put in place to tackle the problem? This book provides some answers to these questions. Suellen Murray and Anastasia Powell review public policy responses to domestic violence in Australia. They consider how domestic violence has been understood and the policy approaches that have been taken."
