About the Women's Safety and Justice Taskforce

The Women’s Safety and Justice Taskforce was established as an independent, consultative taskforce by the Queensland Government to examine:

  1. coercive control and review the need for a specific offence of domestic violence
  2. the experience of women across the criminal justice system.

The Taskforce made recommendations to the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Minister for Women and Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence.
