Submission – Sarah Tucker

Home  →  Submissions Library  → Submission – Sarah Tucker


This submission is a letter from Sarah Tucker to Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, and the Department of Cabinet, Minister for Women Katy Gallagher and Minister for Social Services Amanda Rishworth. In the letter, Sarah expresses profound disappointment and disgust at the decision to exclude Indigenous women from the Domestic Violence panel. The domestic violence panel is a part of the Australian National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children and aims to provide practical advice to the Government on further action to prevent gender-based violence. By not including First Peoples’ voices, Sarah argues that the panel fails to address the systematic issues perpetuating violence against Indigenous women.

The submission also includes a copy of the letter for wider use.
