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.
We have developed a range of resources to share our message. We are excited to offer you our NEW Words with Heart A5 Notebooks, along with our Posters, Postcards, Badges and Stickers. Order heretoday.
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 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.
