Politics in the Pub with Jess Hill
Wednesday 28 August 2019, 6 PM
at Union Bar, 3 Rimmer St, Acton ANU.
Join the Australia Institute in discussion with journalist and author, Jess Hill, to discuss her new book: See What You Made Me Do: Power, Control and Domestic Abuse.
An investigative journalist and author, Jess Hill has specialised in reporting on domestic violence since 2014. Previously, Hill has worked for ABC Radio, as Middle East correspondent for The Global Mail, and an investigative journalist for Background Briefing. She was listed in Foreign Policy's top 100 women to follow on Twitter, and her reporting on domestic violence has won two Walkley awards, an Amnesty International award and three Our Watch awards.
In See What You Made Me Do, Jess Hill puts domestic violence perpetrators – and the systems that enable them – in the spotlight. See What You Made Me Do is a deep dive into the abuse so many women and children experience – abuse that is often reinforced by the justice system they trust to protect them. Critically, it shows that we can drastically reduce domestic violence – not in generations to come, but today. 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.
Copies of See What You Made Me Do: Power, Control and Domestic Abuse will be supplied by Paperchain Book Seller and available to purchase on the night
