WHISE CEO Kit McMahon is welcomed back to 3CR to chat to the Tuesday Breakfast team.
They discuss our 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign and the role healthcare services can play.
Kit McMahon chats about how WHISE works to support the health system and understanding of the impacts of family violence. She also discusses the social, economic, and community benefits of women’s health services focusing on primary prevention.
“We know that women and gender diverse people suffer immeasurably from family violence. And we also know that women, and people who identify as women (or) have a uterus, who also come from other communities and cultures and marginalised groups, doubly suffer as a consequence of family violence. So our work is, is about trying to help and support our health system to understand that and to support and look out for even the health impacts of family violence across their communities.”
