Policing Patriarchy

Abstract

Earlier this year the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research released a report, Domestic Violence in NSW: A Regional Analysis. It concluded that there is considerable regional variation in domestic homicide; that this variation is associated with socio-economic status, low status areas having higher rates of domestic homicide; and that there is a link between domestic homicide rates and rates of reported domestic violence. The report decided that "there is a relationship between domestic violence and class".
