Family violence – You CAN ask that

Family violence – You CAN ask that

On the International Day for the Prevention of Violence Against Women

Join us for a screening of the Domestic and Family Violence episode of ABC-TV’s program ‘You can’t ask that’ followed by a panel discussion.

Hear the stories and consider the implications of family violence in your role.

ABC Radio’s Lisa Pellegrino will host a panel to dissect the confronting issues in the program and encourage us to engage with the topic of family violence, in all its forms.

Geraldine Bilston, as she appeared on ABC TV’s ‘You Can’t Ask That’

Hear from one of the program’s family violence survivor advocates, Geraldine Bilston, who lives locally and shares her experiences of family violence so we can better understand the issues. Geraldine is now a family violence advocate for Safe Steps.

They will be joined by Monash Health’s:
