Delivered

Dear Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade,

Am researching issues of violence, domestic violence, family violence against Australian women and their children, who may or may not be registered Australian citizens by descent, overseas.
Although many issues re Australian citizens overseas are on your website this issue is ignored. Why is this?
How many requests for assistance do you receive at consular offices and Australian DFAT offices annually from Australian women, with or without children, living overseas who are experiencing domestic violence and injustice overseas?
How many Australian women are killed or harmed by domestic/family violence overseas annually?
How much money/public funding is spent assisting innocent and vulnerable Australian women and their children experiencing domestic violence overseas annually?
How much money/public funding is spent assisting Australians who commit crimes overseas annually, i.e. David Hicks, Bali Nine, Peter Scully et al?
Past and current Australian Ambassadors for Women and Girls condone and ignore domestic violence and injustice against Australian women and children overseas, why?
What is current budget, travel and expenses funding for Australian Ambassador for Women and Girls?

Yours faithfully,
Helen Smith
