Tom Meagher speaks about violence
19 Apr 2014 11:11
Jill Meagher's husband has warned against "ingrained sexism" and the "monster myth" around men who commit appalling crimes.
-
Tom Meagher made the comments in an essay for the White Ribbon Campaign, which was set up in an effort to end men's violence against women.
-
In the essay, called "The Danger of the Monster Myth," Mr Meagher recalls how hearing Adrian Bayley, the man who murdered his wife, speak for the first time clarified his views on men who perpetrate violence against women.
-
Bayley was jailed for at least 35 years for the rape and murder of Ms Meagher in Melbourne in Australia in 2012.
-
Her body was discovered in a shallow grave at the side of a dirt road about 50km north-west of Melbourne.
-
The 41-year-old was sentenced to life for the murder and 15 years for what Justice Geoffrey Nettle said was "a savage violent rape of the worst kind".
