    Putting out my 30 candles tonight for the 30 women killed in Australia this year. And one more for those still living with violence or those who identify as survivors. Hold each other tight.

    It’s time that we stop blaming women and instead build a society where women are safe in public and in our homes. More than 30 women in Australia have been killed this year. Tonight we remember them.
