Tone Deaf ‘Stay Safe’ Response

Posted on: Mon 18 Jun 2018

The tragic death of Eurydice Dixon has caused upset and distress among her family, friends and the wider Australian community.

In the wake of her death, authorities urged women to stay safe and take extra precautions when out in the world. This has been received with massive backlash and criticism from people frustrated that the blame is being deflected from men, the actual people committing the crime.

Lecturer in Criminology from University of New South Wales, Dr Bianca Fileborn, speaks with Breakfast’s Tom Mann to discuss the failing ‘stay safe’ rhetoric that is too often told to women.
