Brave Emma brings 'victim blamers' out of woodwork
The Dublin mum's video on the alleged abuse she suffered has exposed some ugly attitudes still held about domestic violence
Sometimes, all it takes is one story to strike at the core of our human experience, when something so deeply intimate to one person speaks to us in a universal way.
And so it was last week when Emma Murphy, a young Dublin mother of two, posted a short video on her Facebook page.
The heartbreaking post detailed her experience of domestic violence allegedly inflicted on her by the man she thought was the love of her life, the father of their two children who denies he is a violent person.
