On the last day of Domestic and Family violence prevention month, we’re reminded of why it is important to raise awareness of the impacts of domestic and family violence, and the support available to people that are affected.
The recent ground-breaking documentary ‘See what you made me do’, revealed domestic and family violence is a crisis that impacts many Australian families.
Alongside our work with White Ribbon Australia, we remain firm in our commitment to eliminating all forms of men's violence against women in our communities, and encourage perpetrators to take responsibility for their actions.
“White Ribbon Australia continues to work community by community to build upon the primary prevention initiatives that aim to end men’s violence," White Ribbon Australia Executive Director Brad Chilcott said.
"Right now, more than ever, we need to not let men’s violence towards women be swept under the rug.”
At a national level we've already seen an increase in the number of people getting involved, from community action groups, workplaces and schools – all coming together to develop community-led responses to support change in their communities.
The challenges of men’s violence and abuse towards women are not unique to one community but the solutions are, and these groups are positively impacting a shift in attitudes that enable violence.
Together we're working towards a nation where every woman is free from all forms of men's violence and abuse.
