Nearly every week in Australia one women is killed as a result of domestic violence with one in three women globally being a victim of domestic abuse. 

While November 25 marks White Ribbon Day, dedicated to eradicating domestic violence against women, problematic views and ignorance amongst younger age groups suggest this could continue to be an issue in the future.

Katie Doherty spoke to professions in the area to see what we, as a society, can do to prevent domestic violence before it occurs.
