Violence against older women sparks media attention

Local community radio station RPPFM has profiled older women during last year’s 16 Days of Activism – showing support to the Respecting Seniors Network campaign – Respect Older Women – Our Response Starts Now. Community response to the Respecting Seniors Network’s social media campaign highlights that this campaign has started an important conversation in our community about the issue of intimate partner violence experienced by older women – a conversation that must continue.
