Does gender equality free women from family violence? Campaigner Rosie Batty and reporter Sally Sara journey to Scandinavia to find out. Despite women occupying 40% of parliament seats and men taking paternity leave, Sweden has one of the highest rates of domestic violence in Europe-possibly due to higher reporting rates. With a national identity based on a false sense of female empowerment, family violence victims face social stigma when speaking out. In this documentary, Batty speaks with Feminist Initiative co-founder Gudrun Schyman, with a domestic violence perpetrator who suffered abuse as a child, and with a domestic violence victim under police protection. She also shares her own experiences as a family violence survivor.
