Laughter or Ridicule? What are we listening for?

Saddened to hear of the violent death of Eurydice Dixon’s and tears welled up at Lisa Wilkinson’s (the Project) quote from Margaret Attwood:

‘Men are afraid women will laugh at them, women are afraid that men will kill them.’

How can we minimise ‘honour’ cultures where Aussie laughter is heard as ridicule and instead encourage a culture where we are all able to laugh at ourselves.
