On this episode of Policy Forum Pod, Chief Executive Officer of Our Watch Patty Kinnersly joins us to discuss the role all Australians have in ending violence against women and their children.

What are the drivers of men’s violence against women and their children? What key elements should be included in the new national plan to address the crisis? And what role can individuals, institutions and communities play in ensuring that violence and all forms of discrimination against women are brought to an end? Patty Kinnersly, CEO of Our Watch – a national leader in the primary prevention of violence against women and their children in Australia – joins Professor Sharon Bessell and Dr Arnagretta Hunter to discuss these questions and more.
