Women around the world are murdered every day by their spouse who has gone mad in the process of wanting to control her every move. It is a very sad story, but it makes a very worthwhile and valid point, even though it is not an Australian story, but rather, is a story of a woman in America. It’s a story to remind you of the importance of getting out safely.
