Domestic violence in Papua New Guinea
“I once was a violent man”
Papua New Guinea has one of the world’s highest rates of violence against women and children. An estimated two out of three women have experienced physical or sexual assault, and often when mothers are assaulted their children are too.
This video shares Taina’s story, a male community leader in PNG who regrets having once been a violent man. It also features Helen and Kay, two women who hope that by telling their stories, people will hear them and take action.
