I just came across this article and it really resonated with me.
I warn you, it’s bloody sad but please have a read of it at the link below and then make up your own mind.
Valerie Bacot: French woman who murdered her rapist husband walks free from court.

For my one cents worth, this is yet another story in a recent chapter of an old and long book on patriachal control that really needs more support from the masses to enable it to cut through and be heard in our centres of power.
That support will empower our politicians to move on it and make some real forward progress on gender relations.
Without that support and overall understanding of what is at stake here from the general public, women will continue to suffer at the hands of men as they have for far too long now.
Things need to change and the only way this happens is through legislation and thus law.
It’s just not good enough for even one woman (first world Australian context) to suffer at the hands of a man in 2021.
Please read up on this subject and if you also feel that change is needed, then please seek out the political party at the next election that has policies which will move us forward and give them your vote.
This must stop.
