Equality called key to ending abuse

We don't want to blame the victim--we don't want to blame the family, employer, or police. who is let to blame? Oh, the perpetrator!

We too often look for other causes--but one thing we will always say her at is that if women want to stop abuse, they have to learn how to enforce the respect-me-rules. In order to be equal, we must act equal--remember, the only way people will walk on you is if you lay down! (pun intended)

Equality called key to ending abuse: "A high-profile review of domestic violence in Ontario puts too much blame on friends and families of victims and offers a bandage solution, a London women's advocate charges. 'There seems to be a shift away from holding the abuser accountable and now holding society accountable,' Megan Walker, head of the London Abused Women's Centre, said yesterday. 'No (ordinary people) can stop a man from killing a woman if that is what he wants to do.' The report, which highlights the need for more public education and awareness, misses the key point about domestic violence, she said."
