Rosie Batty knows pain no woman should have to suffer. Her son was killed by his father in a violent incident in February 2014, a horrendous event that shocked not only the nation, but the world. Since the events of last February, Rosie has become an outspoken crusader against domestic violence, winning hearts and mind all over Australia with her compassion, courage, grace and forgiveness. In the wake of the tragedy, Rosie’s advocacy work has forced an unprecedented national focus on family violence.
In January 2015, Rosie was named Australian of the Year. Hear Rosie discuss her memoir, A Mother’s Story in conversation at this special evening event.
A percentage of proceeds from this event will be directed to the Luke Batty Foundation
