Patty Kinnersly, Our Watch CEO, says: “Reporting on violence against women is complex and challenging, and it is evident from this year’s finalists that the media are keen to shape the national conversation and be part of the positive solution to stop gendered violence. 

 “I congratulate all the finalists and in particular, the 2019 Our Watch Award finalists, who through their reporting play a vital role in raising awareness of the extent of violence against women, and promoting understanding of the drivers of this violence.”
