Today we mourn.

An image that says, “today we mourn all the stolen, violated, and traumatized lives who were affected and destroyed during Queen Elizabeth II reign. Today is a brutal reminder that war criminals will be honoured while entire populations and societies bear the battle scars of colonial genocide, invasion, religious persecution, and white supremacy.”]

CW: violence against women and children.

This week I added names to The Lost Petition, these women and children have had their lives stolen because of male violence.

Some of their names you might have heard in the media, the majority of them haven’t been reported in the news.

Please stay tuned as The Lost Petition be on public display in the coming weeks.
I’ll post details soon.

This work is only made possible by the support and tireless research of Sherele Moody of The RED HEART Campaign.

Remembering Stella Young

Finally some good news!

A few years ago I started a project called ‘Ode to Pioneering Women’.
A series of an illustrative paste-up installation that celebrates the lives of radical women, while acknowledging the absence of monuments to women in the city of Melbourne, and around the world.
This installation highlights the historical achievements of women that go unrecognised in public space.

These women include:
Narelle Grech (who passed in 2013), she was my best friend and an activist and spokesperson for donor conceived people.
Alli Coster, a friend who embodies the inner strength and generosity of everyday women.
Disability activist, journalist and comedian Stella Young.
Indigenous community advocate and Yorta Yorta Elder, Aunty Pam.
The first woman to stand for national parliament and Suffragette Vida Goldstein.
Young Australian of the Year Merita Cheng.
Equal Rights Activist Zelda D’Aprano. And the series concludes with jazz singer, transgender and queer person of colour, Mama Alto.

It is so exciting to see actual statues of these amazing women come to fruition. Zelda D’Aprano’s statue is in development and now Stella Young. It maybe glacial but change is happening. 💪❤️

The Remembering Stella Young project will deliver a statue of Stella Young in her hometown of Stawell to celebrate, commemorate and remember her.

CW: mention of violence against women and children.

One week ago I was invited to present The Lost Petition at Parliament of Victoria.

I saw it as a great opportunity for politicians to hear directly from the lived experience of women and children and victims’ families affected by male violence.

I wanted survivors and families of the victims named in my work to speak but I was refused.
The Lost Petition is not about silencing victims, it is about having voices heard.

I am incredibly grateful that I was given permission to speak on behalf of Lee Little about her daughter Alicia Little.
Alicia was a much loved mum and daughter, she was only 41. She did everything right to save herself, she was making arrangements to leave when she was killed. Her children are unseen victims of family violence.
Her killer spent less than 3 years in jail for violently running her down. Upon release, he moved interstate to the Queensland neighbourhood of Alicia Little’s family.
The Little’s are campaigning for a national register for domestic violence to prevent perpetrators crossing borders and committing more acts of violence as well as mandatory family violence training for judges in the higher courts.

I’d like to acknowledge John Herron who is still seeking justice for his daughter Courtney Herron.

My gratitude goes to Miska and her two children they are survivors of family violence.
Miska and her children who are calling for early intervention to prevent family violence. They want everyone to learn the red flags of coercive control, accept that we are all bystanders who need to speak up. They call on us to not enable or make excuses for the behavior of perpetrators.
Men who do family violence are your friends, co-workers and relatives. Speak up.

Finally my thanks go to my partner Casual Workforce, Andy Meddick MP and Bronwyn Currie Animal Justice Party Candidate Sherele Moody, Karen Pickering March4Justice and all of the advocates for women and children affected by male violence. My gratitude to the survivors of violence and victims families. 🖤

Congratulation to this beautiful family, but lets say everything in Aus is about white saviour culture. The very public return of this family is a paradoxical and challenging story. Specially when we remember that there are still more 100s refugees remaining in Port Moresby&Nauru. This is a familiar pattern: a particular refugee or family’s story becomes known by the public, they are eventually released from detention or get visa, the public celebrate it as an achievement but there is no fundamental change.Other refugees are not released, no policy is changed, nor does it prevent the government from incarcerating other asylum seekers. This paradox is a primary part of white saviour culture – a culture that is integral to the continuation of Australia’s immigration policy

Today at Victoria's Parliament we gathered to pay respect to the women and children who have lost their lives to gendered violence.

An exhibition of The Lost Petition by artist Dans Bain, sponsored by Andy Meddick MP and organised by myself with March4Justice was brought to Parliament where our lawmakers could see up close the name of every woman and child killed in Australia, printed on white linen, 1008 lives lost since 2008.

As Dans pointed out in her speech, we talk about the lives of women killed at the rate of one per week on average, conversely that means one man per week in Australia becomes a murderer.

As someone with lived experience of family violence, I understand the red flags, the warning signs, though sometimes there are none and I stand firm, resolute and formidable in demanding our politicians, our governments act on preventing men and boys from becoming murderers, preventing the lives of women and children being taken. We must have education, early intervention and prevention strategies.

Being close to The Lost Petition is quite harrowing actually, it carries a deep sorrow that reduces many to tears, I hope it moves lawmakers to action. When I am elected I will make the safety and equality of women an absolute priority.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in exhibiting this work and my love to those touched by violence.

This time last year I gave my mum her favourite candle, a book voucher, and a copy of her favourite authors newest book. I rubbed out my birthday message written on the chalkboard and replaced it with one for mum, seeing how long it would take for her to notice.

This year, instead of buying books, candles, flowers, and getting to give mum the birthday she deserves, my mum has a memorial on the mantel place next to a candle, surrounded by flowers and near some books, many waiting to be read by Rachel.

My mum should be here with us, celebrating the cluster of family birthdays in these weeks, instead, we are navigating life without her, and crying out for the justice she deserves.

So today, on mums birthday, I ask that you think of my mum Rachel, and do something kind for another person, like Rachel did every day.

See you later alligator, I love you.

If you think It’s important that Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people have a say in matters that effect them, then get behind a first nations voice to parliament when you get the chance.

We understand of course that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians are not one homogeneous group, thats for sure.
We should know, we once travelled outside of Northcote.

And look, some might say we’re not changing the world by wearing these tshirts (design by ).
But know, we’re more than proud to do so.

The MCA acknowledges the sad passing of Diane 'Di' Kershaw OAM.

Di was a much-loved member of the MCA family whose longstanding contributions include 20 years of service as an MCA Guide.

A passionate supporter of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, Di generously contributed, with her husband Mick, to the donation of works by Alick Tipoti, including 'Adhikuyam' and the monumental print 'Girleal'.

In June 2020, Di received the Order of Medal of Australia (OAM) for her long-time service to the visual arts.

We are deeply saddened by her passing and extend our heartfelt condolences to her family and loved ones.

To be completely honest, I wish this didn't need to exist.

Because every single one of us should be able to get on and get to where we're going in peace.

And no one has the right to make you feel unsafe.

That's where STOPIT comes in.

It's a new service from Victoria Police helping victims and witnesses to discreetly report unwanted anti-social behaviour on public transport.

Our police have a very high success rate when it comes to identifying offenders - but only if it's reported.

So by telling them, you can help them do something about it.

And make our PT safer for everyone.

DCA is deeply saddened to learn of the recent passing of Jane Garrett MP. Jane was a tireless advocate for donor conceived people throughout our efforts for law reform in Victoria during 2010-2016, former Vice-chair of the Law Reform Committee, whose recommendations formed the basis of world-first legislation, known as Narelle’s Law passed in the Parliament of Victoria in Feb 2016.

Donor conceived people are forever grateful for Jane's incredible empathy and energy.
Donor Conceived Australia send their deepest condolences to Jane's family.
Rest in peace Jane.

Here Jane (second left) is joined by other donor conception advocates at the opening of the DC art exhibition in 2015 at the Melbourne City Library.

This is heartbreaking but necessary work - we must bring change. Congratulations to Dans Bain. ❤️
'The Lost Petition' exhibition introduction on artist Dans Bain's website opens with these words: 'In Australia, on average, one woman every week is murdered by her partner or a former partner.'

It's an appalling statistic. And members of the Parliament of Victoria were brought face to face with these numbers this week with an exhibition of Dans' simple but overwhelming work in Parliament's Queen's Hall.

Conceived and first shown in 2021, The Lost Petition mirrors Victoria's Great Petition for the right to vote signed by 30,000 women and presented to Parliament in 1891. But Dans' interpretation becomes an awful memorial - the names of 1007 women and children who have lost their lives to violence between 2008 and 2022. Violence perpetrated by men.

With Derryn Hinch's Justice Party parliamentary colleague Stuart Grimley MP, I joined Lee Little, John Herron and Jay and others to hear Dans speak about her work and a call to action that we all share: lawmakers must double their work to eradicate this insidious crime. Lee's daughter Alicia was so viciously injured by her partner in 2017 that she lost her life. He spent less than three years in jail. John's daughter Courtney was horribly murdered in 2019 by a man later found 'not guilty by mental impairment'. Jai has endured the worst of coercive control by a former partner.

It's now eight months since I again brought to Parliament's attention that Victoria has no stand-alone family violence offence in its criminal code.

If we're serious about stopping it, that's what we need - for the sake and safety of so many women and children who suffer this awful crime. And we need to fund education, intervention and primary support in every community.

View my statement about Dans Bain's 'Lost Petition' at https://taniamaxwell.com.au/lost-petition-defines-our-goal/

Currently on display in Queens Hall in Parliament is “The Lost Petition”, bearing the names of Australian women and children who have died as a result of male violence since 2008.

There are 1007 names. 😢

This week The Lost Petition by artist Dans Bain was exhibited in the Queen's Hall of Victoria Parliament. It took a lot of effort by many people to make this extraordinary event happen.

I'd like to thank the many people who contributed to having the work exhibited. Firstly Dans Bain for her evolving work, adding the name of a woman or child almost every week, and to Dans and her partner for their effort in installing the piece. Sherele Moody for her research which underpins Dan's work. Andy Meddick MP for sponsoring the exhibition at parliament and for being a staunch ally. The March4Justice organisation for being the fierce organisation it is determined to achieve our 4 Asks of Government and for supporting me both practically and with advice and encouragement when I met roadblocks. My family, colleagues and friends who support me through my passion projects and provide endless encouragement and support.

To have such a confronting work in the place where laws are made was important to me. If women demanding change to the way we are treated was enough, we'd be safe, respected and equal by now and not being killed at the rate of almost one per week. But that's clearly not enough and women are exhausted.

To the victim survivors and their families who attended at 1pm in Queen's Hall on Wednesday to hear Dans Bain's speech, thank you. Thank you for coming, thank you for continuing to keep the life of your loved one/s prominent, for continuing to share their stories in hope it never repeats. We see you, we hear you. Thank you to those politicians who took the time to speak to those present bearing witness.

The Lost Petition is a 30 metre long linen, listing 1007 women and children who lost their lives to male violence from 2008; sadly these numbers continue to grow.

We need our lawmakers to lead on the change that will make a difference including early intervention and prevention strategies. We need men to be allies to women, we need men to hold their brothers accountable for their attitudes and behaviours towards women and girls. We must end gendered violence. Together we must do this.

Today at Victoria's Parliament we gathered to pay respect to the women and children who have lost their lives to gendered violence.

An exhibition of The Lost Petition by artist Dans Bain, sponsored by Andy Meddick MP and organised by myself with March4Justice was brought to Parliament where our lawmakers could see up close the name of every woman and child killed in Australia, printed on white linen, 1008 lives lost since 2008.

I'm so proud to be involved in leading the organisation of this project in my capacity as Organiser of the March4JusticeMelbourne, to have the Lost Petition by Artist Dans Bain exhibited in our Victorian Parliament. March4Justice calls on all Parliamentarians to take action on gendered violence.

We NEED equal representation.
We NEED to push for culture change NOW.
Dans Bain features in this clip with her work ‘The Lost Petition’ listing 985 women and children who have lost their lives to male violence. Which was removed from exhibition at Her Place because it made people uncomfortable.
Literally the reason for it existing. 😔
Keep talking about it. Keep pushing. Keep voting for
The fact that nearly 1,000 women and children have been killed by violence since 2008 IS upsetting. But hiding the list doesn't erase the reality. We need to keep national attention on this crisis and we need a government that will take real action to end gendered violence.

An incredibly harrowing event today outside Parliament House displaying ‘The Lost Petition’, artwork by Dans Bain, that lists all the names of women and children who have lost their lives to gendered violence since 2008.

Today, ahead of the Federal Budget, we call for our Parliament to act on addressing the issue of violence against women and children.

This is urgent, we cannot sit idly by as the list of names grows longer and longer.

Also in attendance today was Sherele Moody of The RED HEART Campaign, who voluntarily collects the statistics of domestic violence because the Federal Government won’t.

We must do better.
“There is a gaping hole in the funding for women and a lack of systematic change by this Government,” Bains said. “We need a budget that actively addresses the question- “how will this affect women?” Dans Bain and Sherele Moody have created this powerful piece "to commemorate women & children lost to violence."

A wonderful and heartbreaking way to remember and stir conversation.

Part 2

On Sunday lifelong friends and strangers came together to ensure the voices of 978 women and children are not lost. Lives that were taken at the hands of violent men. We carefully carried the poignant 30 metre long artwork by Dans Bain from The Supreme Court to the steps of Parliament. There were no speeches this time as so much has already been said. On this day, we remembered in silence.⁠

It's time for more action on gender equality, criminal justice reform, and workplace safety. Attitudes and behaviours have to shift. Support services need more resources. Policies need to change. It is utterly heartbreaking reading all of the names and how many lives have been cut short. The ripple effect that extends from each name should also not be forgotten. ⁠
