Webinar: Understanding Coercive Control with Jess Hill
Updated: May 26
Family Law Pathways Network presents:
Understanding Coercive Control
Wednesday, 3 February 2021 1:00 - 2:30 pm AEDT
Domestic abuse is a national emergency: one in four Australian women has experienced violence from a man she was intimate with. But too often we ask the wrong question: why didn’t she leave? We should be asking: why did he do it?
Jess Hill puts perpetrators – and the systems that enable them – in the spotlight. See What You Made Me Do is a deep dive into the abuse so many women and children experience – abuse that is often reinforced by the justice system they trust to protect them. Critically, it shows that we can drastically reduce domestic violence – not in generations to come, but today.
There will be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions during the livestream of the webinar using the ‘chat’ function.
Registered participants will be emailed a link for the webinar within 24 hours of the scheduled start time and will also have access to a recording of the webinar for a period of time following the live stream
Jess Hill is an investigative journalist who has been writing and researching about domestic abuse since 2014. She was a producer for ABC Radio, a Middle East correspondent for The Global Mail, and an investigative journalist for Background Briefing.
Her book See What You Made Me Do combines forensic resarch with riveting story-telling and radically rethinks how to confront the national crisis of fear and abuse in our homes.
