Domestic abuse is a national emergency: one in four 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?

Join us when we speak to investigative journalist, Jess Hill about her critically acclaimed book 'See What You Made Me Do; Power, Control and Domestic Abuse' that puts perpetrators – and the systems that enable them – in the spotlight.

Jess self-describes the book as "a deep dive into the phenomenon of domestic abuse, both how it looks and feels when you're inside the relationship - from the victim and the perpetrator side - and how the justice system responds to it (or doesn't), and what exactly we can do based on solutions that have proven to work to reduce it."

Combining forensic research with riveting storytelling, 'See What You Made Me Do' radically rethinks how to confront the national crisis of fear and abuse in our homes.

Her bravery taking on one of the most critical issues of our time has not gone unnoticed, taking out the 2020 Stella Prize and Best Non-Fiction Book of the Year, Australian Booksellers Choice Awards 2020.
