Please take a look at this very interesting new campaign in Australia to raise awareness about domestic violence.
As one of those few OECD countries going nowhere on gender equality, and suffering appalling rates of gender-based violence, Australia needs to live up to its ‘free’ image and start freeing women from the violence that impacts so many Australian women every day.
Called “Our Watch”, it is clever, and delivers clear messages about violence against women.
Its thesis is, correctly, that no child intrinsically wants to grow up to be an abuser, or be abused; it comes from the way we raise our children. Violence against women starts with the way we shape our children to view women. Make it right.
Act now – intervene now – to stop it happening on our watch.
