Another life lost and we still have domestic violence policy that ignores male victims because of their gender.
Today our thoughts are with Payman Thagipur and the families of those involved who will be struggling with the terrible loss of life because of this senseless act of violence.
A woman who police allege ran over her former lover and killed him after a heated argument was seen calmly walking past his body as he lay helpless in an apartment tower’s car park in Sydney’s inner west.
Shocked witnesses tried to save well-liked Payman “Paul” Thagipur when he was allegedly hit by the Toyota Kluger that knocked over a bollard and pinned him against a brick wall in the car park of his apartment tower on Hill Rd in Wentworth Point on Saturday night but he died shortly afterwards.
In Australia, 1 in 2 victims of intimate partner violence are men, and yet current domestic violence policy ignores these victims because of their gender.
We desperately need to stop the discrimination so we can get on with the job of ending the cycle of violence in Australian homes.
Here’s our #PolicySnapShot
FAMILY VIOLENCE REFORM
Our policy will enforce a zero tolerance approach to all family and domestic violence. Domestic violence legislation will be amended to ensure services and support will be provided to all victims regardless of their age, gender or sexuality.
