Zali Steggall MP asks the Prime Minister to take urgent action on domestic and family violence

27 November 2023

To the Prime Minister. With respect, the Member for Goldstein's question was the first to address domestic and family violence in this place. Many talk about keeping communities safe. But we are failing women and children: a woman a week, and a child every two weeks. And yet, we talk of keeping communities safe. Both sides of parliament came together to pass urgent legislation following the High Court's decision. Where is the urgency, the national emergency, when it comes to women and children? With respect, ten years is not good enough.
