This week on the program we speak with Professor Kyllie Cripps (@CrippsKyllie), Director of Monash Indigenous Studies Centre and Palawa woman, about new research she has published on systemic racism embedded in the deaths of 151 Aboriginal women.
Kyllie’s research examines police failures in relation to their role as first responders to situations of intimate partner violence against Indigenous women.
Her article Indigenous women and intimate partner homicide in Australia: confronting the impunity of policing failures is published in Current Issues in Criminal Justice.
Our episode today has a content warning for intimate partner violence against Indigenous women and racism.
