The inaugural 16 Days in WA to Stop Violence Against Women campaign will take place from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, to 10 December, which is Human Rights Day.
Based on the international 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign, 16 Days in WA is Western Australia’s contribution to these efforts and aims to raise awareness; motivate positive actions across the state; and advocate on behalf of those agencies and organisations which are currently working hard to oppose violence against women.
Men play an important role in preventing men’s violence against women. Watch the video below featuring prominent Western Australians Stormie Mills, Mitch Johnson, Ben Elton, Gareth Parker and Evan Hewitt speaking about standing up to violence against women.
You are invited to make your mark in the inaugural 16 Days in WA initiative – to Educate, Motivate and Advocate in your community, and stand up to stop violence against women.
Download a copy of the Community Kit which includes key messages, important facts and statistics, ways to get involved and social media tools to help spread awareness, and put up a poster to show your support.
Everyone has a responsibility in stopping violence against women.
Together, let us raise awareness of the issues and empower our communities to be the catalysts for positive change.
