Over the past four years the Federal Government has spent over 100 million dollars promoting a feminist view of domestic violence, claiming it is all about gender inequality and disrespect for women. There’s no evidence supporting that claim for egalitarian countries like Australia.
This funding is about to run out and the huge domestic violence industry is lobbying the government to feed the feminist cash cow.
Watch Bettina’s YouTube video explaining why she has launched her campaign.
The government needs to hear from the silenced majority about the truth about family violence, including the male victims and the people who grew up with violent mothers as well as professionals, police and other front line workers who object to the current one-sided campaigns.
Bettina has prepared a petition, based around a letter to the Minister for Women, Kelly O’Dwyer, urging the government to take an evidence-based approach to family violence which acknowledges violent women and addresses the complex causes of this important social problem.
