"A simple shift in the language we use will not be the magic bullet to ending crimes committed by partners or family members against the people they are meant to love and protect. But calling domestic violence what it really is – assault, rape or murder – might go some way in shifting thinking about how serious these crimes are." - Deborah Knight
In this Today Show segment presenter Deborah Knight discusses the power of words; maintaining that the language we use carries enormous power. Knight proposes that we, as a nation, need to change the way we talk about family and domestic violence to more accurately reflect the seriousness of the issue. We Agree.
