Domestic abuse in relationships between women

January 12th, 2012 · 8 Comments · LGBT, Same Sex Partnerships, Social Policy

If you watch one thing this week?

More on this fabulous European campaign and the organisations behind it.

My experience in Ireland has been that many lesbians are involved in work in the area of domestic violence but refuse to work on or acknowledge domestic violence in same sex relationships. But no all lesbians want to do is get married. There have been some changes but there is much more discussion, acknowledgement and action needed. Where would Irish based women experiencing domestic abuse from another woman go? (Garda LGBT Liaison officer list as of November 2011 is here – other suggestions in the comments please!)
