            See What You Made Me Do: Power, Control and Domestic Abuse

            At the office of Safe Steps, Victoria?s dedicated 24/7 family violence response call centre, phone counsellors receive a call every three minutes. Many women are repeat callers- on average, they will go back to an abusive partner eight times before leaving for good. 'You must get... so frustrated when you think a woman?s ready to leave and then she decides to go back,? I say. 'No,? replies one phone counsellor, pointedly. 'I?m frustrated that even though he promised to stop, he chose to abuse her again.? Women are abused or killed by their partners at astonishing rates- in Australia, almost 17 per cent of women over the age of fifteen - one in six - have been abused by an intimate partner. In this confronting and deeply researched account, journalist Jess Hill uncovers the ways in which abusers exert control in the darkest - and most intimate - ways imaginable. She asks- What do we know about perpetrators? Why is it so hard to leave? What does successful intervention look like? What emerges is not only a searing investigation of the violence so many women experience, but a dissection of how that violence can be enabled and reinforced by the judicial system we trust to protect us. Combining exhaustive research with riveting storytelling, See What You Made Me Do dismantles the flawed logic of victim-blaming and challenges everything you thought you knew about domestic and family violence.

            On average, one woman is murdered by her current or former partner in Australia every week. One in three Australian women has experienced physical violence since the age of fifteen. One in five Australian women has experienced sexual violence. These stories and these names soak i...nto our culture - Jill Meagher, Eurydice Dixon, Aiia Maasarwe. But what can we do to stem the tide of violence and tragedy? Finally, we are starting to talk about this epidemic of gendered violence, but we are still doing so in a way that can be clumsy and harmful. Victim blaming, passive voice and over-identification with abusers continue to be hallmarks of reporting on this issue. And, with newsrooms drastically and regularly cutting staff and resources, and new business models driven by clicks more than in-depth reportage, it's difficult for both readers and journalists to see that. Fixed It demonstrates the myths that we're unconsciously sold about violence against women, and undercuts them in a clear and compelling way. This is a bold, powerful look at the stories we are told - and the stories we tell ourselves - about gender and power, and a call to action for all of us to think harder and do better.

            No Visible Bruises: What we don't know about domestic violence can kill us (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            An award-winning journalist's exploration of the domestic violence epidemic, and how to combat it. An average of 137 women are killed by familial violence across the globe every day. In the UK alone, two women die each week at the hands of their partners, and in the US domestic v...iolence homicides have risen by 32% since 2017. The WHO deems it a 'global epidemic'. Yet public understanding of this urgent problem remains catastrophically low. Journalist Rachel Louise Snyder was no exception. Despite years of experience reporting on international conflicts, when it came to violence in the domestic sphere, she believed all the common assumptions- that it was a fate for the unlucky few, a matter of bad choices and cruel environments. That if things were dire enough, victims would leave. That violence inside the home was private. And, perhaps most of all, that unless you stand at the receiving end of a punch, it has nothing to do with you. All this changed when Snyder began talking to the victims and perpetrators whose stories she tells in this book. Fearlessly reporting from the frontlines of the epidemic, in No Visible Bruises she interviews men who have murdered their families, women who have nearly been murdered, and people who have grown up besieged by familial aggression, painting a vivid and nuanced picture of its reality. She talks to experts in violence prevention and law enforcement, revealing how domestic abuse has its roots in our education, economic, health, and justice systems, and how by tackling these origins we can render it preventable.
