GENDER BASED VIOLENCE
Gender-Based Violence is 'any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women. This includes threats of violence, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or private. Domestic and family violence can take many forms including emotional, psychological, financial and sexual abuse.
To end violence against women, we need to challenge the attitudes that perpetuate, rationalise and normalise that violence, and deny women and children's right to safety. Men are overwhelmingly the perpetrators of gender-based violence. To see violence truly eliminated, we need to educate regarding male toxicity. Shifting these behaviours is hard and slow, but gender equality means all of us, and working with all genders is the only way to see true change.
Gender Equity and Equality means all persons will benefit. Gender equity will reduce violence against women, children and men.
TO REDUCE GENDER BASED VIOLENCE WE NEED GENDER EQUITY
The Gender Equity Project was developed to help the community achieve equity. Click here for more information and to access the Gender Equity Training Package for free.
