Traveller women tend to keep quiet about domestic abuse, instead of seeking help.
That’s according to a new policy paper launched today by Galway Traveller Movement.
The ‘Taking Action’ document has been launched in Oranmore as part of the ’16 Days of Action Opposing Violence Against Women’ global campaign.
The document aims to break the taboo surrounding domestic violence among the Travelling community.
Galway Traveller Movement spokesperson Bridget Kelly says Travellers are leading the way in raising awareness of domestic violence issues.
