Ep. 58: Where justice ends
Annabel Hennessy was reporting on another case when she heard a name that would change everything. A lawyer, expert in First Nations’ rights, told her about Jody Gore - a woman convicted of murder with little weight given to the years of domestic abuse she suffered.
This story unravels how Annabel’s groundbreaking series of articles led to real change in Western Australia.
