We have been contacted by the producers of a one-hour programme examining domestic violence in regional Australia - part of a series examining social issues in regional areas.
Part of the reason for doing these programmes is to explore issues specifically outside of the metro cities and to give a voice to people affected who may not necessarily be heard via other media outlets.
For this programme on domestic violence they are particularly keen to hear from men who are affected by this issue.
They are looking for 2 case studies:
1. A male victim who has been subjected to physical violence at the hands of a wife/defacto/intimate partner. Ideally that would have some photographic/video record of the abuse, police reports etc to accompany their story.
2. A male victim who has suffered non-physical abuse. Online harassment, bullying, emotional intimidation, financial pressure or threats involving their children.
The producers are happy for men to take part either 'on the record' or anonymously.
If you would be interested in being interviewed for the project, or you know of someone who might be, please let us know.
