How To Break The Silence On Domestic Abuse

Unladylike is a feminist, deeply reported podcast that takes on the issues that are really relevant to women—and explores what happens when women “break the rules” of social expectations. In one episode, they take on sexism in the workplace, while another looks at how to get a rape kit, or how to have the “money” talk with a partner.

In this episode, they take on the issue of domestic abuse. An Unladylike producer travels to her home county of Australia to interview Rosie Batty—the woman brought the issue of domestic violence into the national agenda, and who managed to transform the country’s policy on domestic violence.

But while Batty has had a huge impact on the issue, her role as the face of domestic violence started in tragedy, after her estranged partner brutally murdered their son. This episode highlights the story of this courageous woman, while also highlighting how misunderstood the issue of domestic violence often is—and what it takes to bring a “woman’s issue” to the national stage.
