The Simon Gittany trial should be a wake up call for abusive men

Women already know when they’re in an abusive relationship – and leaving their perpetrators is highly dangerous. It is abusers and their support networks who need to be urgently targeted

Simon Gittany was found guilty of murdering fiancée Lisa Harnum, and some commentators will have you believe there is a message for women to take home in the circumstances and details of the trial. There isn’t. It is not a wakeup call for women in relationships with controlling, manipulative, abusive men (believe me, most of them are wide awake to what they are experiencing). It is not a tragic example of what happens when you “choose” the wrong man, and it’s no more a sad tale of love gone wrong than it is an advertisement for steak knives. 02-12-2013
