Dr Cathal Berry TD speaking in the Dáil in relation to combating violence against women

This week in the Dáil, I spoke about the EU Directive on combating violence against women and domestic abuse. I am very supportive of this Directive and the sanctions set out, but I believe the answer is that prevention is better than cure. The emphasis needs to be on educating people and changing cultures and behaviours that cause harm to women.
