Federal Election 2016: Call to Parties

White Ribbon Australia has released a Federal Election 2016 Call to Parties. We call on all political parties and representatives to commit to primary prevention initiatives that stop men’s violence against women before it starts. Download the Call to Parties here.

Women and girls in Australia experience unacceptable levels of violence and abuse. While this has been condemned by politicians, we need serious and coordinated action to stop men’s violence against women.

Government must support established and proven violence prevention initiatives to create the cultural change we need to end men’s violence against women.
