When we talk about family law and domestic violence, we actually don’t really talk about it. It is typically a private matter, and it ends up being taboo. You hear a lot about corporate and public initiatives about combating sexual assault and abuse at the workplace, but not a lot about domestic violence. Maybe because it is too personal, maybe because it is too complicated, but in my conversation with Mujdah Rahim, I learned a lot about how domestic violence matters as a public health crisis that is closer to us than may seem. Like, it could be happening to a close friend, or it could be something that any of us could experience. Understanding more about what it means to support victims of domestic violence on a daily basis really opened my eyes to how it should be more part of the conversation we have on health and safety.
