The Bulb | S2 | Ep 4 | The story of Jessica: Vicki Lowik

May 18, 2021

PhD candidate, Vicki Lowik, generously gives listeners a taste of her recent research in this fascinating podcast.  The story of “Jessica”, as studied by Vicki, details the development and progression of domestic violence during a 27-year marriage against a backdrop of a community endorsing the Christian doctrine of male headship. 


In each episode of The Bulb, the podcast will explore aspects of gendered violence – what is thought about it, what we know about it, and what is yet to be revealed.

The QCDFVR is funded by The Queensland Government and is based at CQUniversity Australia.
