Summary

"Urgent action is needed to address the epidemic of violence in Indigenous communities. Aboriginal women are between 37 and 80 times for likely to experience family violence than non-indigenous women. For too long, the voices of the victims of domestic violence have been oppressed and silenced."--Back cover.
