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.
