In 2015, domestic violence once again came to the forefront of media scrutiny through several high-profile cases of abusive behavior making their way to the headlines. But even under the glare of the spotlight, many still have little to no understanding of the underlying issues behind the statistics. In this two-parter, Australian journalist and Four Corners presenter Sarah Ferguson dives deep into the domestic violence problem in Australia, accompanying police investigating cases, living in a women’s shelter and having rare access to doctors, prisons, courts and of course, those who have been living under the threat of domestic violence and are taking the steps to change their lives.
