#16Days: Prevent

Information is power. To eliminate gender-based violence, we first need to understand its nature, causes and scope.


Family violence is preventable, not inevitable

Our submission to Victoria's Royal Commission into Family Violence in 2015 focused on governance and policy reforms; women's experience of economic abuse and insecurity; and preventing family violence, response and recovery. At the heart of our submission is the view that family violence is a gendered crime. → Read our submission to Victoria's Royal Commission into Family Violence for more information.
