Let's change the story: Violence against women in Australia

Australia has a choice. We can change the story that currently sees a woman murdered every week by a current or former partner. We can choose a future where women and their children live free from violence.

Australia now has a framework national approach to prevent violence against women and their children.

What the national framework makes clear is that gender inequality is the core of the problem and it is the heart of the solution.

Meet Jane... 'If she can see it, she can be it'


What are we portraying to children through media they consume?

The Geena Davis Institute are working to make women and girls more visible in the media, particularly to make women and girls more than 'eye candy' in the children's media. The See Jane campaign focuses on the need to dramatically improve gender balance, reduce stereotyping and create diverse female characters in entertainment targeting children 11 and under.

‘The Mask you Live In’ in Gippsland

We are continuing the rollout of screening throughout Gippsland. Enquiries contact Anna on 5143 1600 or

The film focuses on the pressure boys and young men face from the media, their peer groups, and adults in their lives, to fit into gender stereotypes, and society’s narrow definition of masculinity.  ‘The Mask You Live In’ ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
