Stella Prize 2020: See What You Made Me Do

Jess Hill in conversation with Rick Morton

Saturday 15 August 2020
6.30PM – 7.30PM

“It’s not a crime to demand that your girlfriend no longer see her family. It’s not a crime to tell her what to wear, how to clean the house and what she’s allowed to buy at the supermarket…”

Jess Hill’s ground-breaking book on domestic abuse See What You Made Me Do: Power, Control and Domestic Abuse was a bold choice for the 2020 Stella Prize. Hill goes behind the facts and figures and explains how we can confront this national crisis and drastically reduce the violence today.
