It's been a shocking and disturbing week for New Zealanders as the missing-person case of 22-year-old British tourist Grace Millane has unravelled.
Grace was reported missing early last week by her family as her constant social media contact ceased.
Following days of investigation and searching, the distressing moment came when the search for Grace became a homicide investigation. She was allegedly murdered at the hands of a man she reportedly met via a dating app.
Every woman should be able to travel the world alone and meet whoever they choose, without the fear of violence or death at the hands of another.
This tragic act is what provoked Clint Roberts, host of ZM's Bree & Clint show, to make a statement to fellow Kiwi men:
