Media Changing the Story: Media guidelines for the reporting of domestic, family and sexual violence in the Northern Territory

These guidelines are an excellent resource for journalists, writers and media professionals who are covering domestic, family, and sexual violence in the Northern Territory.
They remind us to humanise victims and survivors, to use culturally sensitive reporting practices, and to centre the voices of relatives and community members.
Deadlines should not come before the need to connect with communities to ensure that a tragedy is covered with the input, advice, cooperation and guidance of those affected by family violence.
This project was led by Dr Chay Brown, in collaboration with the Tangentyere Women’s Family Safety Group and Galiwin'ku Women's Space, with support from the ANU Gender Institute
