Australia’s ‘national shame’

It’s been labelled Australia’s ‘national shame’ – so far this year, 27 women have been killed in acts of gender-based violence. Now, the country’s Domestic Violence Commissioner is convening a crisis meeting of leaders from across the country to figure out what comes next. It comes as thousands marched in rallies over the weekend calling for stronger action. On today’s podcast, we’ll discuss the context, what the government is saying and what comes next in this national conversation about women’s safety.
