Discussion Paper 2 - Women and girls' experience of the criminal justice system
Discussion Paper 2 seeks community feedback on our proposal to focus on women and girls’ experience of sexual violence in the criminal justice system, as well as the experience of women and girls as offenders.
The paper outlines key themes we could potentially consider. We want to know if you agree with these themes, or if there are any other themes you think we should be looking at.
If you would like to make a submission about any of the proposed themes, you can do so now or you can wait - we will be releasing further discussion papers exploring each agreed theme in more detail.
This paper is now open for consultation until 30 July 2021.
You can respond to this paper by making a submission through this website or by post.
Discussion Paper 1 - Options for legislating against coercive control and the creation of a standalone domestic violence offence
The Queensland Women’s Safety and Justice Taskforce released its first discussion paper seeking community opinion on how best to legislate against coercive control as a form of domestic and family violence.
The paper also examines the need to create a new offence of ‘commit domestic violence’ in Queensland law and offers a range of options for discussion.
The consultation period for this paper has now closed.
