Domestic violence in NZ on TVNZ Sunday Programme, 2 September

Featuring issue expert Shine GM Jane Drumm, this in-depth segment looks at the NZ criminal justice response to NZ and why women often stand by men who are violent, looking in particular at the story of John Tanner. It also highlights efforts to combat domestic violence in Victoria, Australia where the government is rolling out a massive, multi-faceted campaign with a $2 billion price tag. According to Jane, "They've realised that in order to get on top of this issue, they are going to have to do a major coherent strategy which will cost a huge amount of $$."
