“Violence against women is at epidemic proportions. Devastatingly, over 12 months, on average, one woman is killed every week in Australia as a result of intimate partner violence,” the Hon Natalie Ward MLC said.
For sure, to prevent the domestic violence will be the first priority for the State Government.

“Violence against women is never a private issue. ACYEC holding this event to help break the silence around violence, to raise awareness of the issue as well as funds to support work to bring violence against women to an end.
“ACYEC want people to know that it is violence against women is unacceptable, it is never the victim’s fault, help is always available and if you see something you should definitely say something. People need to know that they can make a difference; bringing an end to men’s violence against women will take a whole of community approach.”
