After a seven-year campaign spearheaded by New Zealand Member of Parliament Jan Logie, the country's lawmakers passed legislation that will give domestic violence victims 10 days of paid leave from work, a step advocates say will give victims much-needed space to protect themselves from their abusers without jeopardizing their income.
Seriously, you’ve got universal healthcare, and now this…New Zealand, you’re just rubbing our noses in it.
outstanding! i still remember the days i had to go into work with black eyes and split lips. it was humiliating and scary. any steps toward making these steps easier for battered women is applaudable.
Sorry to here that, I sincerely hope you’re situation has improved. Any kind of abuse is not ok.
