The Royal Commission into Family Violence, established earlier this year to investigate practical solutions to respond to violence against women, is the first such body to be set up in Australia. Over the next couple of weeks, the commission will hear from a range of stakeholders, including victims, family violence experts as well as the police. If, like us, you wish to follow the developments closely, visit the RCFV website for a copy of all the submissions and live streaming of the hearings.
