Breakfast with Rosie Batty

Breakfast with Rosie Batty

 

Boffins Books and The Womens Council for Domestic & Family Violence WA present a breakfast event with Rosie Batty. Rosie will talk in conversation with former journalist, state MP and long-standing women's rights activist Diana Warnock about her story, as revealed in her new book.



Rosie Batty knows pain no woman should have to suffer. Her son was killed by his father in a violent incident in February 2014, a horrendous event that shocked not only the nation, but the world. Greg Anderson murdered his 11-year-old son Luke and was then shot by police at the Tyabb cricket oval. Rosie had suffered years of family violence, and had had intervention and custody orders in place in an effort to protect herself and her son. She believes the killing was Greg's final act of control over her.

Since the events of last February, Rosie has become an outspoken crusader against domestic violence, winning hearts and mind all over Australia with her compassion, courage, grace and forgiveness. In the wake of the tragedy, Rosie's advocacy work has forced an unprecedented national focus on family violence, with the Victorian Labor government establishing Australia's first royal commission into family violence, and committing a further $30 million over four years to protect women and children at high risk of family violence. The then Victorian Police Commissioner Ken Lay called it 'the Rosie Batty factor'. In January 2015, Rosie was named Australian of the Year, 2015.

The Women’s Council for Domestic and Family Violence Services (WA) is a state wide peak organisation committed to improving the status of women and children in society. They seek to ensure that all women and children live free of domestic and family violence. The role is to provide a voice on domestic and family violence issues that facilitates and promotes policy, legislative and programmatic responses relevant to women and children who have experienced domestic and family violence.

A percentage of royalties from sales of this book are going to the Luke Batty Foundation and $5 from every book sold by Boffins Books between 1 October and 31 December 2015 will be donated to The Womens Council for Domestic & Family Violence WA's Funds For Freedom Project.
