Prime Minister Scott Morrison has criticised how the courts deal with victims of domestic violence during a speech to the National Summit on Women’s Safety. Business Council of Australia CEO Jennifer Westacott used her address to call for paid domestic violence leave to become a universal employment right. Chief Executive Women Australia president Sam Mostyn told the summit that the majority of boards and CEOs are actively working on strategies to deal with violence against women and children. A 2016 report from PwC found that the total cost of violence against women and children is in excess of $22 billion.
