Women’s Network Hunter is urging people to have an honest, open discussion with someone about non-physical domestic violence on day four of their campaign.

The campaign is part of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence, which began on Friday, November 25.

The message behind Monday’s action is to be aware that domestic violence doesn’t need to leave bruises or scars to be a crime.

Things such as threats of violence, controlling behaviour, forced isolation from friends, and financial abuse all count as domestic violence.
