“You can’t watch me 24/7. When you least expect it I'm going to lock you all in this house and I want to burn the house down”

Arman Abrahimzadeh grew up witnessing his dad’s violence against his mum . At first, he didn’t question his dad’s behaviour. But then came that threat.

Jan Fran and Marc Fennell look into the issue of domestic and family violence and violence against women. Is an app the answer to help prevent harassment and abuse? Zoe Condliffe is working to document sexual harassment and abuse, turning stories into hard data.

Arman and his sisters created the Zahra Foundation which provides financial education and small funding grants to women so they can escape an abusive partner, build confidence, and regain control over their lives.
