Student roundtable: The changing face of domestic violence and how students can help

Wednesday 11 August, 12 - 2pm

In 2021, Brittany Higgins and Grace Tame became household names. A few sacked staffers, a ‘Pink Budget’ and marches on Parliament later, it is clear that many questions about violence against women and domestic violence remain unanswered. What does domestic violence look like in 2021, and how has it evolved? How do we understand financial abuse and technology-facilitated abuse? How is research contributing to the fight against domestic violence? How can students get involved, especially through grassroots advocacy? 
To explore these questions and others, the UWA Public Policy Institute is hosting a private, student-facing ‘Ask the Experts’ event, hosted by our Student Interns.

Invited attendees will have the chance to hear directly from and interact with three expert speakers:

  • Maria Osman, Minister For Citizenship & Multicultural Interests' Multicultural Advisory Group / Government of Western Australia
  • Professor Colleen Fisher, Head of School of Population and Global Health
  • Elisa Fear, Financial Toolbox and YourToolkit
