Gippsland Prevention of Men's Violence against Women Strategy

Have you heard about our new campaign?

Make The Link - Gender Equality is the Key to preventing men's violence against women.

Make the Link website image

Our campaign encourages people to make the link between gender inequality, sexist jokes, traditional gender roles and how it is linked to and helps to allow men's violence against women to continue.  We hope that we can encourage people in community and workplaces to question these everyday things that support violence against women.

We all have a role to play in ending violence.

Australia now has a nation framework for a integrated approach to preventing violence against women and thier children. The Framework makes clear that gender inequality is the core of the problem and it is the heart of the solution. 


Challenge attitudes, behaviours and social norms that underpin and create violence against women and their children.
