In this powerful but short video, Patrick Stewart shares his thoughts on domestic violence. He talks about how in his own life he has had issues in relationships that stem back to his parents destructive relationship.

He quite rightly tells us that women, or men for that matter need to speak out when they are in an abusive relationship.
50% of all adult women claim they have been the victim of some kind of abuse. Just like the government take the issues of drunk driving, smoking and violence against minors so seriously. As should they about domestic violence.
