Posted on December 10, 2013


One in Five women in Ireland experiences domestic abuse.  It can happen to any woman, in any home and at any stage of her life. 

As part of its annual ‘One in Five Women’ National Balloon Action during the International 16 Days of Action Women’s Aid has produced a video to give a snapshot of what this looks like, in one incident of emotional abuse for one woman. The video tells the story of Lisa who is suffering abuse from her partner, yet it has a positive message.  And you can be part of it.
