All women deserve to live in a world where they are guaranteed safety and the chance to live life without fear of being harmed physically or emotionally. Aboriginal women and children in the NT experience the highest rates of abuse in the world. This is a sad and confronting reality. With the rising number of women being murdered by partners in this country we must reflect and think about what we need to do to end this madness. Here at CASSE we will continue to work with young men to heal their trauma, be proud of their culture and to respect women everywhere. Help is avaialable by calling Respect: 1800 737 732
