The week after the end of the Grace Milane trial, Meg opened up about violence against women this White Ribbon Day.
New Zealand has the highest rate of reported violence towards women in the developed world.
- One in three women will experience partner violence at some point in their lives.
- Less than 20 percent of abuse cases are reported.
- Approximately 3,500 convictions are recorded against men each year for assaults on women.
- On average, 14 women a year are killed by their partners or ex-partners.
