1 woman is killed every 4 days as a direct result of domestic abuse. Domestic abuse continues to be an issue which seriously affects the lives of women and children in Buckinghamshire. We know that abuse can happen to anyone which is the central message of a new ‘Love Should Not Hurt’ campaign by Women’s Aid. The hard hitting information film is inspired by real life stories of survivors and shows the devastating impact of physical violence and coercive control.
Mel B has become a patron of Women’s Aid and features in the new film. She shares her own experiences of domestic abuse in an interview on the web page alongside the new awareness video. Both can be found here:
