Crowds march against domestic violence on White Ribbon Day

It came as the state government announced an independent review of sentencing for domestic violence killers, in an effort to reduce re-offending by 25% by 2021.

Domestic violence homicide claimed 28 lives in NSW in 2017-18, representing nearly half of all homicide victims.
