SA Greens to Move in Parliament for a Royal Commission into Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence

The SA Greens will move a motion in the states Upper House next week calling on the Government to hold a Royal Commission into Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence. 

The move is backed by advocates for women’s safety, including Embolden SA, the Zahra Foundation and Catherine House and comes after four women in South Australia have been murdered by men they knew in the past week.
