Australian of the Year Rosie Batty has suggested the federal government would invest more money in family violence initiatives if it was called "family terrorism".
Rosie Batty told the National Press Club how she spoke to the media after she found out that her 11-year-old son, Luke, had been murdered by his father, her estranged partner Greg Anderson, in February last year.
Recent research commissioned by an organisation founded by the commonwealth and Victorian governments, Our Watch shows disturbing views among young people about domestic violence.
