Student Alliance attend the ABC Q&A program on Domestic Violence

The MSB Student Alliance representatives (an initiative of the Alliance of Girls Schools Australasia) were invited by the ABC to attend the live filming of the program Q and A with a domestic violence theme on White Ribbon Day in acknowledgement of their work on their #1MINUTE video.

In this special episode the students viewed the second part of Sarah Ferguson's documentary 'Hitting Home' and proceeded to watch a distinguished panel of guests discuss the issue of domestic violence in Australia. We heard many touching stories from both 'Hitting Home' and audience members whose lives were touched by this issue. In watching 'Hitting Home' and discussing the domestic violence crisis Australia faces as a nation, no holds were barred and no aspect was too taboo to discuss. Sarah Ferguson's documentary explored the issue exposing its causes and effects in a brutal light. The students were forced to question all they knew about what was being done to lessen the prevalence domestic violence and how deep its roots run.
