Book - 2007
Rate this:
In this NOW Australia, eminent Australian playwright and author Louis Nowra goes behind the media headlines and reveals the endemic male Aboriginal sexual and domestic violence against women and children. He tries to answer the question of whether this violence is traditional or a product of two hundred years of white settlement. He examines traditional Aboriginal life and cites observations by early settlers, explorers and anthropologists. He also analyses a wide range of reports from various governments, health professionals, the media and from Aboriginal women and men.The issue is such a culturally sensitive one and to write about it is highly controversial, but Louis Nowra strongly believes that the issue is so important that it must be openly addressed and dealt with immediately.
