Jacinta Nampijinpa Price is a courageous, intelligent and principled woman who has overcome enormous hurdles, including surviving a violent relationship, to become a fearless campaigner for the most disadvantaged members of her community.
Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi says Jacinta Price is a remarkable woman for continuing to speak out despite relentless personal attacks.
An opinion piece in the Herald Sun says, like her mother, Bess Price, Jacinta is more concerned about the plight of at-risk women and children than privileged inner city activists obsessed with imaginary victimhood.
What keeps her up at night is the fact that indigenous women are 35 times more likely to be hospitalised due to domestic violence than other Australian women and the shocking rates of sexual and physical abuse suffered by indigenous children.
Price should be revered among women’s rights campaigners and indigenous advocates but instead she is despised for revealing uncomfortable truths. She attracts vile abuse: sexist, racist, threatening diatribes designed to degrade and intimidate. That Price perseveres in the face of vitriol and threats of violence is a testament to her character and strength.
Conservative Party leader has told Sky News the attacks on Jacinta Price are politically motivated.
