Senator Ivana Bacik supports the 16 Days Campaign

I very much support the good work that Women’s Aid does in supporting victims and survivors of domestic violence. However, I am very concerned at the inadequacies of the legal system in responding to those victims of domestic violence, and in particular I am very concerned at the low levels of reporting of severe abuse to the Garda Síochána by women who are victims of domestic violence. I believe that an urgent review is required of the response of the criminal justice system to women who experience domestic violence, as there are clearly inadequate levels of support available to those women.
