Domestic violence survivor calls for dating apps to check users' histories for violent offences

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:10 pm on 21 September 2020

It started so well. The man Dr Angela Jay met on Tinder in Sydney was charming, attentive and made her feel special. It would end when the man she had only dated a few weeks attacked her in her own home, stabbing her 11 times and dousing her in petrol. We'll talk to Dr Jay about surviving domestic violence and her call for dating apps to check users' history for violent offences. Dr Jay will be presenting at TEDxSydney 2020 online.
