Content warning: domestic abuse, violence
Love, Power and Control was a two part webinar series, screened on 11 & 18 February 2021, hosted by the Victorian Women’s Trust and moderated by Jess Hill, award winning journalist and author of See What You Made Me Do: Domestic Abuse, Power & Control.
In this series, panelists considered the fact that in 2015, coercive control was criminalised in England and Wales. More than five years on, what has changed? And if Australia was to follow suit, would victim-survivors of domestic abuse be better or worse off?
