In the wake of calls to action to address domestic violence, the Federal Government announced an Advisory Panel to reduce violence against women. The panel will include 2015 Australian of the Year and domestic violence campaigner, Rosie Batty; WESNET and AWAVA Chair Julie Oberin; and disability advocate and Canberra citizen of the Year, Sue Salthouse, as part of the 11 person panel.

The panel will provide advice to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) on issues of domestic and family violence, and make recommendations for Government responses.
