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 our 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.
This video is a way you can support and show solidarity online with women experiencing domestic abuse.
You can log into via Facebook for a personalised interaction or you can watch the video without using Facebook.
It takes less than 2 minutes to watch and share with your friends online. Visit www.womensaid.ie/oneinfivewomen to see how you can help women like Lisa find their voice.
If you or someone you know are experiencing any of these forms of abuse, you can call the Women’s Aid National Freephone Helpline 1800 341 900 for emotional support and practical information.
