ABC - Bring back feminist Q&A episode
Q&A is one of the only television programs that discusses and explains the issues of the day. Seeing a diverse group of experts addressing the immediate need for action on gendered violence and its intersection with race was important and validating. The panel's palpable anger was justified.
This episode should not have been removed from iview and must be brought back immediately.
Why is this important?
One women is killed in Australia per week. This is worse for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. How can we even begin to get this number under control if we can't talk about the root issues?
We needs shows like Q&A as a forum for experts to discuss the need for action, and the best solutions.
Removing the episode shows a capitulation to men's rights activists and white nationalists who don't want women, non-binary people and people of colour to be safe or have any rights in Australia.
The ABC must bring back this important episode of Q&A!
