Domestic and family violence

We are proudly participating in 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence.

16 Days of Activism

This annual international campaign kicked off on 25 November - the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and runs until 10 December - Human Rights Day.

It was started by activists at the inaugural Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991 and continues to be coordinated each year by the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership.

We proudly stand with organisations and groups around the world in calling for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.

We're Better Than That

We are thrilled to be able to share the "We're Better Than That" video campaign, featuring messages from Colin Fassnidge, Luke Carroll, Bruce Hopkins, Rishi Acharya and Mike Whitney.

This campaign promotes respect and healthy relationships, and encourages men to be active bystanders when they witness behaviour that condones and contributes to violence in our communities.

Funded by the Central and Eastern Sydney Public Health Network, the campaign is a collaboration between the Eastern Suburbs Domestic Violence Committee, the Hope Believe Shine Foundation and Randwick, Waverley, Woollahra and Bayside Councils.

For more information, visit the "We're better than that" Facebook page.
