Publisher's Summary

On average, at least one woman is murdered by a current or former partner every week in Australia. Far too many Australian women have experienced physical or sexual violence. Only rarely do these women capture the attention of the media and the public. What can we do to stem the tide of violence and tragedy?

Finally, we are starting to talk about this epidemic of gendered violence, but too often we are doing so in a way that can be clumsy and harmful. Victim blaming, passive voice and over-identification with abusers continue to be hallmarks of reporting on this issue. And, with newsrooms drastically cutting staff and resources, and new business models driven by rapid churn and the 24 hour news cycle journalists and editors often don't have the time or resources bring new ways of thinking into their newsrooms.

Fixed It demonstrates the myths that we're unconsciously sold about violence against women and undercuts them in a clear and compelling way. This is a bold, powerful look at the stories we are told - and the stories we tell ourselves - about gender and power and a call to action for all of us to think harder and do better.
