Reply To: Reflect and discuss: Why prevention in Mercy’s story

    To stop the cycle that will continue.
    Education is required for men about VAW, equal power, understanding, compassion.
    Until the cycle is broken then the violence will continue.

    The behaviours are a learnt behaviour from children to adults.
    Children learn from there parents and carry this forward to their adult life and see it as normal and acceptable.

    Until this preventative measures are put in place then the power balance will remain unequal.
