On this PBS video you will hear children talking about the impact of domestic violence and the failure of the court system to honour their needs and keep them safe. You will also see domestic violence and legal professionals describe the all too common fact that justice is not being done in favour of many many children.
This is a vast problem that reflects the interplay between male abusers’ use of children as weapons against women to maintain power and control, and to maintain what they consider to be their “rightful” position as head of the family. Plus . . . it reflects the support for such abuse by some professionals who are either ill-informed about the realities of psychological control, or who intentionally support men’s right to have power over women and children.
