I add my thanks to Rosie Batty for her service as 2015 Australian of the Year
Following the tragic loss of her son, Rosie’s courage in advocating to end family and domestic violence is inspiring.
Rosie has been a national leader in the important work being done to bring family and domestic violence out of the shadows. She has given women across the country the courage to seek help.
She has moved our country to redouble efforts to make meaningful change at all levels of government and the community.
In thanking Rosie for her outstanding service, our nation must maintain momentum in pursuing the elimination of family and domestic violence.
