Stott Despoja: Band together to celebrate women

Natasha Stott Despoja

MY first Reclaim the Night March was before I'd even hit my teenage years. I understood early that women's rights were worth campaigning for and that they were always under threat.

When women are not represented equally in positions of power, let alone not paid the same because of their gender, there is something wrong in a society.

When women fear for their lives when walking on the street at night, or face violence in their own home (domestic violence, better described as criminal assault in the home), something is not right.

Jill Meagher Tribute



Published on Oct 1, 2012 by AeternaSomnium

I composed this piece for Tom Meagher in memory of his wife Jill. Though I didn't know her, I hope it captures something of her spirit and a little bit of her Irishness.

Column: Jill Meagher’s tragic death should not be in vain

Many people will have read the story of Jill Meagher and thought ‘That could have been me’, writes Paula McGovern. We must act as a society.

7 hours ago

LIKE MANY OTHER people, Jill Meagher’s tragic story deeply saddened me this week. Her story is tragic beyond belief – a beautiful young woman attacked and murdered in her prime, metres from her front door. I prayed she would be found alive, I cried when I heard the news she was found. I pray for her now – that she didn’t suffer much pain, that she passed quickly and that she is now at peace and her family have the strength to cope with her loss.

I imagine, I hope, she had no reason to ever believe such horrendous things could happen her. Her story is so familiar to me too; I feel like I could have known her. Her life mirrors my own and that of my friends in so many ways. We are of similar age, similar careers, similar taken-for-granted freedoms. Like many Irish people of our generation I lived in Melbourne for a time and socialised in the Brunswick area. She emigrated to Australia with her husband some years ago; so did my best friend, so did my sister.

Police have returned to the shallow grave where Jill Meagher's body was found last week to search for evidence.

Gisborne South locals said police appeared to be searching for something on quad-bikes on Black Hill Road, where Ms Meagher's body was found late on Thursday night.

A police spokeswoman confirmed officers were on the scene again today "as part of the investigation", but could not give any further details.

A plaque has been erected at the site, which has been visited by dozens of mourners since Ms Meagher's murder.

I've noticed in the video that Adrian Bayly didn't just walk away when Jill started to dial a number on her cell phone, he is still right there, a short distance away from her. At about the 2:07 mark, I can see his head through the upper part of the left storefront window (by the wrought iron scroll), I can also see his hand moving, it seems like he is still talking to her while she is dialing, he get lost from view at about the 2:13 mark.

Watch it on Youtube (the screen is larger):

Jill Meagher's family speaks of pain

October 3, 2012 - 8:11AM
Megan Levy
Breaking news reporter

Visitors pay tribute to Jill Meagher at a memorial site where her body was found in Gisborne South.

The heartbroken family of Gillian Meagher has paid a moving tribute to the 29-year-old, whose abduction and murder after a night out in Brunswick has shocked and saddened the nation.

Ms Meagher's parents, George and Edith McKeon, and her brother Michael, posted a message on Facebook last night speaking of their pain that she was no longer with them.

"It's hard to be apart from you," the message, posted on Mrs McKeon's Facebook page, said.

Heading to a legal lynching

Opinion

October 3, 2012
Jack Waterford

Social, but also police and mainstream media, are making fair trials harder to achieve. Can new rules put the genie back in the bottle?

Within hours of the arrest of a Melbourne man for the rape and murder of a missing woman, Victoria Police gave reporters from the Victorian media an off-the-record briefing about what had happened. They appear to have told the journalists, judging by the reports that emerged from minutes after, that the suspect had confessed.

Perhaps they made a deal about what could and what should not be reported. The media, for example, has been largely incurious, in public at least, about the sequence of events from the time the suspect is said to have met the victim until he is said to have buried her - although, within 12 hours of the arrest, media were confidently stating that the suspect had led police to the shallow roadside grave, the location of which was told to the media, and, quickly, to the public. (It is now, like the shop from which video-footage was published, bestrewn with flowers from people greatly affected by the murder.

The suspect was soon before the courts, and, soon after, his name emerged. Within minutes, those who Googled it were able to find old newspaper reports suggesting that the man charged had previous convictions for violence and sexual assaults. Anyone could have discovered this, but just in case, Australia's most popular blog site was operating as a signpost.

Keeping women safe is everyone's responsibility

Opinion

October 3, 2012 - 6:47AM
Jerril Rechter

We need to harness the shock and sadness over Jill Meagher's death to demand a society that will not tolerate violence against women.

~Snipped~

As a community, we need to harness this sadness and direct it towards a solution. We need to ask not only why this has happened, but how we can prevent it from occurring in the first place.

Here's a hard fact about being a woman in Victoria in 2012: if you are aged between 15 and 44, the biggest threat to your health is not smoking, alcohol or too much junk food – it is violence.

One in five Victorian women has been sexually assaulted. One in three has been a target of violence, whether it's physical, verbal or psychological abuse, or more subtle forms of violence such as threats and controlling behaviour. Despite what we often hear, this violence is most often perpetrated by a man the woman knows and trusts. And these are only the cases that are reported to police.

Alessandra, could you go in on the title of this thread and change it, since she is no longer missing. Her body has been located and they have the person in custody, so it needs to be put under a different section.

Ann used to do this if J4a wasn't available, but now neither of them is available.

If you can't do this, maybe Julie can!

Facebook shuts down Meagher suspect pages

13:19 AEST Wed Oct 3 2012

Steve Lillebuen

Social-media giant Facebook has finally removed several hate pages targeting the 41-year-old Melbourne man accused of raping and killing ABC radio employee Jill Meagher.

Police say the sites were removed by the US-based company after days of repeated requests from Victorian authorities.

"A number of sites have been taken down on our request, and we thank Facebook for that," a police spokeswoman told AAP on Wednesday.

Fear in the 'burbs' without the threat

DateOctober 5, 2012
Opinion
Canberra Times

The horrific death last month of a young Irishwoman, Jill Meagher, prompted tens of thousands of Melburnians to march through the inner-city suburb from which she was allegedly abducted. The crowd - a mix of angered, frustrated and grief-stricken citizens - wanted to ''reclaim the streets''; they were, in a sense, mourning the loss of their ability to walk free from fear in their neighbourhood.

Their emotional reaction was understandable; indeed, the march was a touching example of the community dropping its walls of indifference to share a common pain. Yet the alleged offence - a brutal kidnapping, rape and murder committed by a stranger - is so rare that it represents effectively no risk to the general public. Melbourne is as safe, or as dangerous, as it was before Ms Meagher was killed.

Mourners arrive for Jill Meagher's funeral
and family of Gillian Meagher arrive at Fawkner Memorial Park to farewell the 29-year-old who tragically died less than a fortnight ago.


Mourners are arriving at a cemetery in Melbourne’s north this morning for the funeral of Jill Meagher, the young Irish woman whose death has touched and shaken a nation.

Two weeks to the day after an evening out in Brunswick with colleagues turned tragic for the 29-year-old, her family and close friends are gathering at a chapel to say their final farewells in a service due to start at 10.30am.

At 9.50am, two buses ferried mourners to the chapel, among them Ms Meagher’s ABC colleagues, including Red Symons.

The heartbroken husband of Jill Meagher bid an emotional farewell to his wife at her funeral today.

Tom Meagher said his wife was never happier than when she was making other people laugh, and had a knack for making strangers dance to awful music.

‘‘Goodbye my beautiful, funny girl. I’ll love you forever,’’ he told mourners at Fawkner Memorial Park this morning.

Twenty-nine white doves were released at the end of a service in tribute to a woman who was remembered as vibrant and fun-loving, and who touched the lives of many.

Locals bring Jill Meagher tragedy to us

Anthony Radford | Bendigo Weekly | 04-Oct-2012

TWO former Bendigo journalists found themselves at the centre of one of the biggest news stories of the year over the past fortnight.

Former Bendigo Weekly journalist Annika Smethurst, and former Bendigo IPTv reporter Stephanie Anderson both played important roles in the coverage of the tragic disappearance and death of Jill Meagher last month.

Ms Smethurst recently began at the Herald Sun, and Ms Anderson as a cadet at the ABC, working across all platforms.

Both were on night shift when Ms Meagher disappeared, and worked long days and nights throughout the next week as the horrific story unfolded.

True Irish send-off for Jill as doves soar high

October 6, 2012
Chris Johnston

UP ON Blackhill Road in Gisborne South in rural Victoria, where Irish-born Gillian ''Jill'' Meagher was found dead almost a fortnight ago, the site of her shallow grave is now covered with flowers and mementoes.

They look like staying for some time. There is even local talk of a permanent memorial, a tree perhaps.

On the farm fence near where her body was buried are handmade posters calling for the reintroduction of the death penalty.

Jill Meagher farewelled in Irish hometown

By Europe correspondent Mary Gearin, ABC
Updated October 6, 2012, 10:41 am

A memorial mass for ABC employee Jill Meagher has taken place in her home town of Drogheda in Ireland.

Family and friends gathered to remember the 29-year-old, who was killed after leaving a bar in Melbourne two weeks ago.

Hundreds of mourners filled the church in Drogheda where Ms Meagher was baptised.

Father Oliver Devine, the priest who married Ms Meagher and her husband Tom, delivered the homily

Hundreds gather in Ireland to farewell Jill Meagher

By Elaine Keogh Oct. 6, 2012, 6:46 a.m.

The hopes and dreams for Jill and Tom Meagher's new life in Australia were "cut short by a despicable act one Friday night that has left us all numb", mourners at a memorial mass in Ireland were told overnight.

~Snipped~

Father Devine recalled that while working, at Brown Thomas in 2003, she had served Australian pop star Kylie Minogue. "She was shocked to realise that Kylie was actually shorter than herself!"

He also told mourners that in the love poem Jill wrote for Tom for their wedding day, she said: "He taught me that listening to Jewel just wasn't cool; Tried to convince me that Shakespeare was but a fool; After listening to all this waffle I just knew; So I wrote on the back of a Tesco (supermarket) receipt, I Love You."

Father Devine told mourners that bad things could happen to good people and that on "this side of the grave, we have no rational explanation why".

Melbourne opens its heart in the face of horror

October 7, 2012

John Elder

Terrible crimes can affect the public in different ways.

IN THE same week Jill Meagher went missing, three elderly men, one of them aged 85, were bashed at Pakenham railway station. One of the men was glassed and pushed backward onto the tracks. The incident prompted a small story in the local paper.

Horrible things happen to people every day, and if they turn up dead the response can range from a small, even cryptic news report to outraged war-sized headlines.

Why do some crimes resonate more powerfully through the community than others?

Taxi rank guards plan to boost safety

8 Oct 12 @ 12:23pm
by Nic Price

NEW taxi ranks manned by Yarra Council officers would be installed under a Socialist councillor plan to improve late-night safety.

But the proposal sparked a heated debate at last week's council meeting, with the Greens accusing the Socialists of using the Jill Meagher tragedy for electoral gain.
