Victims of domestic violence were remembered at a candlelight vigil at Federation Square on May 6.

Organised by Safe Steps 24/7 Family Violence Response Centre, the vigial drew attention to our greatest social epidemic.

Safe Steps CEO Annette Gillespie, said: “Family violence is corroding the fabric of Australian society. The damage that it does to women’s ability to participate in everyday life is enormous.”

One in three women will experience violence at the hands of a male and two women a week are killed by a current or former partner, a statistic that has doubled since 2014.
