Do you know the red flags of an abusive relationship to look out for?

Celebs, influencers and survivors join forces with Cosmo to end domestic violence.

One in four Australian women have experienced emotional abuse. One in three have experienced physical and/or sexual violence. And one woman is killed every week by a current or former partner.

That’s too many women.

Cosmo has banded together with influencers, celebrities and survivors of gender-based violence — including Sam Frost, Georgia Love and the Thinkergirls — to shine a light on the red flags that all too often precede physical violence. Together we can put an end to violence against women once and for all.
