Family violence: “it is within our power to do something about it”

A hundred people have joined the White Ribbon Day March today on Queen Street, Auckland, to stand up against family violence. “We have to get that message across. It is never right to hit a woman,” says Sarah Claire.“I am standing for the women out there who are unable to come here,” says Nyasha. “People - more than being scared - they are ashamed,” explains Miss India NZ Rupal. “I’m here as an Indian, and it happens in Indian family, so stop that,” she says. “It is within our power to do something about it individually and collectively,” says Carol Beaumont from the New Zealand Nurses Organisation.
