NOW says men need training

NOW says men need training
27 Nov

The National Organisation of Women has taken issue with the way the Protection Orders Act is being interpreted by some stakeholders.

Public relations officer, Marsha Hinds, says there are still issues with who is considered a victim of domestic violence, and who can start the process to have a protection order issued.

She says men are also not getting the training needed to help them address their behaviours, once a protection order is issued against them.

Ms. Hinds says another major challenge facing the organisation, is the way statistics about domestic violence are collected.
