Jess Hill on why we need to openly discuss domestic abuse

‘Part of the Australian story has been our struggle to face the difficult truths of our recent history. To me this is a book about what happens when there’s nothing in our culture to help us process these unseen forces, and instead they erupt behind closed doors. Our future depends on telling and reading these stories, not recoiling from them.’While accepting the Stella Prize for her nonfiction book See What You Made Me Do, Jess Hill argues that we need to talk more openly about domestic abuse and the society that enables it.
