Sarah Best

17th March 2020

This article explores a scheme in Brazil where nail technicians are being trained to help identify women who may be at risk of or who are experiencing domestic violence.

The scheme has drawn interest from other countries around the world, including the UK. Sutton council in south London has also asked barbers, beauticians and hairdressers to be trained to spot domestic violence.

This article could be used for the Families and Households unit (dark side of the family), and Crime and Deviance (domestic violence, feminism).
