White Ribbon’s statement in response to the Women of Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia video

CEO of White Ribbon Australia, Libby Davies, said in response to the Women of Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia that violence in any relationship is unacceptable.

“This video is abhorrent, it is not in keeping with the fundamental right of every woman to live free from violence and abuse.”

“Respectful relationships regardless of culture are built on mutual respect and it is never okay to use violence in any relationship.”

“The use of violence is about power and control and positions women as objects and not as equals.”

“It is an abuse of their fundamental right to be treated with equality and respect.  Most men recognise this and more are speaking out and acting to stop domestic and family violence across our diverse community.”

“It is up to all men, together with women, to stand up, speak out and act to build a society based on respect, fairness and equality”
