The Backbone Collective is a national coalition for domestic abuse survivors, which is currently focusing its efforts on the Family Court. They’ve recently released some damning research about the functioning of the Family Court, which prompted a response from the Family Court Principal Judge Ryan, the Minister for Justice and the Law Society, all of whom disagreed with the Collective’s findings. Co-founder Deborah McKenzie speaks to 95bFM reporter Caitlin McIlhagga about the response the Collective has received so far, the strategy behind how they're approaching the issues and where they think we should go from here.
