Religion can't back violence: Vic inquiry
by Jacqueline Le
Religious groups should not be able to promote the belief that men are superior to women if Australia wants to address family violence, an inquiry has heard.

"In Australia we seem to be completely silent about that," said Joumanah El Matrah of the Muslim Women's Centre for Human Rights.
