What we get wrong – and how we can do better – in the ways we talk about violence and sexual abuse.

On average, one woman is murdered by her current or former partner in Australia every week. One in three Australian women has experienced physical violence since the age of 15. One in five Australian women has experienced sexual violence. These stories and these names soak into our culture – Jill Meagher, Eurydice Dixon, Aiia Maasarwe. But 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 we are still 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 and regularly cutting staff and resources, and new business models driven by clicks more than in-depth reportage, it’s difficult for both readers and journalists to see that. 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.
