I am so sad. I am outraged. Why are we not out on the streets demanding to know why women can’t walk home on their own without being stalked and killed.
Rip Aya. I am so sorry Australia failed you

We are on the streets. We are demanding and we are screaming but for the most part we are being ignored.

I read her story in tears this morning. May she RIP.

So incredibly sad. And how horrific for her cousin to be FaceTiming her and not know what was happening.

Nope,the dialogue is all about a shaver ad.

Her poor sister - imagine having to live with the speculation that if you had contacted police sooner, your sister might have lived.

How heartbreaking.

Surely the shaver ad discussion is part of the same topic?

I agree but there is not the same coverage,it is difficult for voices about actual incidences of violence against women to be heard.

I see Bettina Arndt has now entered the arena.
ETA:Sorry, in regards to the shaver ad.Wrong thread.

how tragic - that poor woman.

the shaver ad discussion in theory is all part of the same topic, but as usual (IMO) men have managed to center themselves in the discussion - and how it made them feel, how hurt, affronted etc - and so we now have female commentators (Clem Ford, Jane Caro etc) dealing with their accusations and having to explain away their hurt feelings - rather than dealing with the fact that, YK, toxic masculinity is killing women. literally: killing women.

This is so sad. RIP Aiia. :(

Yes,women are dying and men are trying to flush their shavers down the toilet while Miranda and Bettina applaud them.

Does anyone have a link for this story please? I can't find anything... which is sad in itself.

Thank you.

ETA - just read it. Omg how horrible. I just realised this is actually near a friend of mines house. I didn't connect the dots. How bloody horrible.

Just wait for the victim blaming to come. It always does.

A 4.5 year old little girl was sexually assaulted in a public toilet at a beach not far from me the other week and all people could focus on was 'how could the parents let her go to the toilet by herself' (which they didn't btw - but who cares about the truth right).

Time to start just randomly killing men.  Equality.

I may not be entirely serious.  Or maybe I am.  Because I am so sick of whiny, entitled, sanctimonious, toxic, brutal, rude, men pretending that their hurt feelings are more important than dead women.

This is another disgusting attack, when will our judicial system take these attacks seriously?  I'm feeling despondent atm but I think we need to make a huge stand against violence against women.  It is a basic human right to walk safely home at night, yet once again another beautiful life was taken most likely at the hands of a sick man.  What can we do EB'ers? A march? A protest against lenient sentences?

I was thinking the same thing, anon maybe it's time to organize a big March or something even if it's just too keep it in the news (or get it in the news *sigh*)

I don't watch mainstream news, so can't comment on that but this has been on the main page of The Age yesterday and today. Yesterday's article did not state Aiia's name or age though.  In hindsight I assume police had to notify her family overseas. :(

I don't know what news sources others read but I knew about this story as soon as it broke.

The juxtaposition with the Gillette ad is heartbreaking, and powerful.

Heartbreaking. Another young woman just trying to live her life.

I felt sick hearing that a body had been found earlier in the week, and knowing the details now it is somehow even more horrific.

If some-one could please post the details on the vigil and roses on the tram. I cant read the details behind a pay wall.

Yes. A 36yo mother of twin girls. Went for a run, sent a text that she'd be back in 20 minutes, and never came home. She went for a run at Mount Nameless in the Pilbara.
