Zoe Daniel, the federal member for Goldstein who was present in the audience, said her concern was with the outcome of Wednesday’s national cabinet, where the federal government pledged $925-million towards combating gender-based violence.

She said the meeting between state and federal leaders could have been a “moment right now to shift something”, but it fell short of expectations.

“The can was kicked down the road,” she said.

“There was no extra funding for frontline services, there was no extra funding for housing.”
