Rosemary Anne "Rosie" Batty, a strong campaigner against Family and Sexual Violence, said this to more than 200 men and women at the UPNG Main Lecture Theatre last week.
Batty was drawn to the work of advocating against violence after losing her 11-year-old son in 2014. Unfortunately, her son was murdered by his father at a cricket field.
When addressing students and stakeholders, Batty explained that violence is about ultimate power and control.
“There’s a degree of openness found here that is difficult to find in Australia,” added Batty.
