The feminist writer Clementine Ford has hardened TV presenter Joe Hildebrand because he claims that & # 39; not all men & # 39; to blame violence against women.
Ford criticized Hildebrand for his remarks in the aftermath of the murder of the 25-year-old homeless woman Courtney Herron in Melbourne. She was the fourth woman in less than a year to be found dead in a public place in the city.
Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius said that violence against women & # 39; absolute male behavior & # 39; was a comment Hildebrand said was & nonsensical & # 39 ;.
& # 39; We know that violence against women is a problem. I don't see how I think about myself will prevent women from being beaten or killed, & he said.
Mrs. Ford wrote a column in which she tackles & # 39; three things Hildebrand wrongly tackles & # 39; emphasizes.

Separating men into a & # 39; good & # 39; and & # 39; bad & # 39; binary number was a & # 39; frustrating obstacle to changing public attitudes about gender inequality and violence & # 39 ;, Ford wrote in its column for 10 daily.
& # 39; In fact, the vast majority of men are not good or bad, but neutral. They do not intervene if their friends say or do something sexist. They do not challenge gender inequality in their workplace, & she wrote.
& # 39; They take part in accusing stories about women's behavior … these things may not be the same as a violent murder. But they are part of the continuum of disrespect, sexism and physical violence that women are constantly exposed to by good people. & # 39;
Ms. Ford said that Hildebrand's assertion that police press conferences or awareness campaigns were ineffective was also incorrect.
& # 39; Shifting the story from women's behavior to men's is not about blaming all people for the actions of a few. It's about recognizing that the actions of some come from the culture of a gender-unequal world in which men are overwhelmingly the beneficiaries, & she wrote.
Hildebrand said the figures for domestic violence were relatively low & # 39; were in well-to-do locations, but & # 39; shot up & # 39; in poorer areas.
Mrs. Ford said this was one of the most damaging furphies & # 39; was about violence against women, and argued that poor men were no longer inclined to attack women.

& # 39; The form of family violence is probably also different, with financial and emotional abuse more likely. The rich areas that Hildebrand rejects because they are not really concerned with these issues can be full of women who realistically understand that their rich husbands have the means and connections to get custody of their children and / or to leave them helpless let, & she wrote.
Hildebrand was also criticized for his comments on Twitter and responded to the response on Monday.
& # 39; I just wanted to say a lot of thanks to the very decent men and especially women who have stood up for me and common sense in the last few days, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; I am sorry for any abuse that you have manipulated as a result. Fortunately – as we know – such abusers are just a poor minority. & # 39;
