FWF2020 Intersections of the Law: Fernanda Dahlstrom, Sally Goldner, Monique Hurley

The vast majority of women prisoners in Australia are themselves victims of violence.‘ –Fernanda Dahlstrom

What do our interactions with the law mean and what life pathways do they create? Our panellists and audience discuss the pressing issues for women and non-binary people of all backgrounds in fair and equal access to legal scaffolds, as well as models of change for justice.

CW: This event includes discussion of violence.
