When Anj was just sixteen, she suffered severe brain injuries when her ex-boyfriend attacked her and left her for dead.
For years before the attack, he had been verbally and physically abusing her, controlling who she saw, and isolating her from friends and family.
She didn’t realise how bad the abuse was, until it was too late.
"Violence against women starts young. Kids in relationships should know the signs of abuse. I wish I had."
Young women are disproportionately affected by men’s violence in Australia, being twice as likely to experience violence compared to the wider female population.
1 in 6 women experiences abuse before the age of 15.
1 in 3 women aged 18-24 have experienced sexual harassment.
1 in 3 young people don't think controlling someone is a form of abuse.
Young people need to know what is and isn’t acceptable behaviour in their relationships. Abuse can be subtle and even missed if you don’t know the signs. Name calling, threats, put downs, controlling who you can and can’t see, constant calls and messages are all signs of an abusive relationship.
Men's violence against women is preventable.
