International Women’s Day: Violence Against Women

I was pleased to be able to attend an International Women’s Day Public Forum at Parliament House, Hobart entitled “Men’s Violence Against Women: A Broader Conversation”. Amongst many presenters, Madeleine Ogilvy explained some of the issues women face regarding online abuse. As former Chair of the Joint Select Committee on Cyber-Safety and the Senate Select Committee on Cyber-Safety, I have heard many harrowing stories of predatory online behaviour against women and girls.
