Zoe Dronfield is a mother, business women, a professional and a survivor of domestic violence in that order. Zoe refuses to be defined by her journey although is compelled to make changes for the future for others and her children.
Her professional expertise allowed her to see how flawed that system is after being catapulted into the criminal and family justice system in 2014. Two very stark contrasts and Zoe wants to highlight the impact the system has on victims going through this at their most vulnerable time.
Zoe is calling for an #openfamilycourt not to the public but highlights the need for transparency and accountability in the family judiciary. She also campaigns using #serialregisterneeded and highlights how serial abusers are getting away with it time and time again. Her own story highlights how perpetrators are giving a platform and the victims are the forgotten in a system which looks at incidents in isolation meaning the severity and risk of offending is minimised.
Zoe has done many media appearances, conference talks, education in colleges, help groups and implores you to follow her and back her campaigns for change. She has a group supporting mothers and victims of domestic violence going through the family court system IWMM. She says there is a real skewed view of survivors in family court and this needs to change
