FixedIt is a project I started in 2014. It was born of frustration with the then constant victim-blaming and erasure of perpetrators from media headlines about men’s violence against women.

At the time media headlines were full of  “scorned lovers” who raped women they claimed to love, “good fathers” who killed their children, and adults who had “sexual relationships” with children they were abusing.

Nearly eight years later, after hundreds of fixed headlines, a book, a Ted Talk, dozens of speaking engagements and several training sessions, those headlines still happen.

Habits die hard and victim-blaming attitudes are stubbornly persistent. Change is happening though. I don’t see nearly as many “scorned lovers” or “good blokes” kill their partners and children. They’ve (mostly) stopped describing men who sexually abuse children has having “sexual relationships” with their victims.

That doesn’t mean Fixed It is over. I wish it was. But as you can see from the posts below, there is more to do.

If you want to get notifications of Fixed It posts you can sign up for a free (or $5 a month) membership on Patreon. Meta has decided my Insta and FB accounts are news sites, so you may not see many of my social media posts anymore. I also have a Substack if you’re interested in the other work I do. And don’t forget to have a look at the books I’ve written (another one coming soon). Thanks for the support and remember to tag the publications if you’re sharing a post – they need their audiences far more than their audiences need them. This is how we get them to change.
