See What You Made Me Do: Power, Control & Domestic Abuse, with Jess Hill27 Aug 2020 – 12:00 – 13:30 BST
Every year in England and Wales alone, one in twenty adults suffer domestic abuse, two thirds of them women. Every week, two men kill a woman they were intimate with. And still we ask the wrong question: Why didn’t she leave? Instead, we should ask: Why did he do it? In See What You Made Me Do, investigative journalist Jess Hill puts perpetrators — and the systems that enable them — in the spotlight. Her radical reframing of domestic abuse takes us beyond the home to explore how power, culture and gender intersect to both produce and normalise abuse.
Join Stella Award-winning journalist Jess Hill as she talks about her new book–a profound and bold confrontation of the domestic abuse crisis and its deep roots.
