For so long, women have said “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t'.
The only flowers they ever get are those placed on their graves.
As reported in The Age “The Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, Fiona Richardson, said people had a right to be safe, especially in their own home, no matter where they lived.
Indeed they do Fiona, indeed they do.
So why don’t we, the observers, speak up?
Let's say you were on that tram and witnessed the punch in the face incident.
What would you have done?

THE Leadership Event for Women: Get Into The Driver's Seat
International Women's Day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women's success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed. Globally, women make up two thirds of the worlds population, yet earn only 10% of the world’s income. Yes, there is much to be done and it has to start with the women themselves. Women must become aware of their habitual behaviours, habits that don’t serve them.
Let’s look at a common one: ‘The Burnt Chop Syndrome’. Although this is a uniquely Australian expression, it has a global impact. And it’s not just about burnt chops.
Just yesterday, a young woman contacted me to buy a copy of my book. She'd glanced through her Mother's copy and read the chapter "The Burnt Chop Syndrome'. Instantly, she identified with the stories in this chapter and could not believe she was doing exactly that behaviour. She saw the effect on her and her family's relationship. Immediately, she changed her behaviour. Immediately.
Yes, this story is not just about burnt chops. It's about the value you place on yourself. How high is that?
