Boffins Books, The Women's Council for Domestic and Family Violence Services, and the City of Perth Library are delighted to present Natasha Stott Despoja for a High Tea talk where she will speak about her new book, On Violence, and asks - why is violence against women endemic, and how do we stop it?
Can't make it? We'll happily have a book signed for you. Call Boffins on 9321 5755 to make your arrangement.
Every two minutes, police are called to a family violence matter. Every week, a woman is killed by a current or former partner. This is Australia's national emergency. Violence against women is preventable. It is not an inevitable part of the human condition. It's time to create a new normal. It is time to stop the slaughter in our suburbs.
