    Excellent discussion this morning about violence against women, both in Australia and internationally, at the roundtable with @TaranaBurke hosted by @AusHumanRights and @DV_NSW . Very grateful for the invitation to attend and represent @eSafetyOffice @eSafetyWomen

    How do we engage men who use violence? This is a critical first step towards sustainable changes in their attitudes & behaviours.

    Listen to researchers talking about "invitational narrative approaches" in this new episode of Insights: the ANROWS podcast:

    Embargo lifted - it is now offical - so I can share that my @arc_gov_au #DECRA on #tech-facilitated #DomesticViolence #FamilyViolence & State responses was funded...
