BONUS EPISODE: A new cultural reckoning? Gendered violence and misogyny in Australia and the UK

Revelations of violent, sexist and misogynistic conduct in Parliament House have rocked Australia, leading tens of thousands to the streets to protest and dominating the news agenda. Meanwhile, in the UK, there has been an outpouring of grief and anger in response to the murder of Sarah Everard, with calls for the government and police to better protect women.

 

In the wake of these harrowing events, are we experiencing another cultural reckoning, similar to the #MeToo movement? What’s the true extent of gendered violence in Australia and the UK today? And are our policies and laws doing enough to keep women safe? 

 

In this bonus episode, listen to Julia Gillard and a panel of experts discuss these issues and more at a recent GIWL event.
