Rise Up Against Mens Violence Towards Women
As a society, we need to face up to the reality that male violence against women is an endemic problem. Listen to victims and survivors, reform the family law courts, overhaul policing and the way it reinforces violence and lack of safety for so many people, deal with stalking, give far more attention to coercive control, reform our sex education curriculum and stop the objectification of women in the media. More than anything, the state needs to stop the platitudes and ensure women victims and survivors are not reduced to begging for help, but are believed, represented and resourced.
Why is this important?
Violence is happening everywhere and all women are at risk. It's happening on the street, in homes, in workplaces, in entertainment, and in intimate relationships.
