Everyday Victim Blaming

challenging institutional disbelief around domestic & sexual violence and abuse

He punched my baby

A punch in the face for my 18 month old baby while i held him was the last straw for me! When we went to court my ex told the judge i was trying to hit her not the baby he just got in my way! He had to pay me £50 compensation! The uk courts are a joke they give these men to many chances & do not protect women & children.

    Thank you for sharing this. We are alarmed at the number of women who report a lack of understanding by the courts and for blame being allocated to anyone other than the perpetrator.
    We believe you – and know it wasn’t your fault.
