How Do Men Prevent Violence Against Women? Criminologist Dr Michael Salter

Dr. Michael Salter is an internationally renowned Criminologist at the University of NSW. He’s an expert in child sexual exploitation, complex trauma and gendered violence. The prevalence of male violence against women has reached a tipping point in Australia recently, and Michael has been one of the key voices in the national discussion.

We were extremely fortunate to have Michael on the show. He does an incredible job of explaining the mechanisms behind gender violence and some of the practical solutions available.
