Violence Against Women – A National Crisis

In Australia today, women are being murdered by a current or former partner at the deeply disturbing rate of one woman every 15 days.

And, most partner homicides follow a history of male-perpetrated violence.

The Prime Minister has declared violence against women to be a national crisis.

This is an ongoing emergency, and many Australians are asking how we can do better in addressing this complex and dire situation.
Is it institutional and legal solutions?… Education and role-modelling?… Deep cultural change that is needed?

While everyone can agree on the need for action, what’s the best way forward?

The Wednesday Daily host Nelson Scott is joined by Dr Emma Buxton-Namisnyk, Lecturer in the School of Law, Society and Criminology at UNSW to chat about the issue.
