Acting against gender-based violence

Cardinia Shire Council is encouraging community members to continue to work together to call out gender inequality, sexism and violence against women this November and December.

Today (Wednesday 25 November) is International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women – it’s also the first day of the United Nation’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

Coinciding with this campaign is Respect Victoria’s ‘Respect Women: Call it out’ initiative, which also runs from 25 November to 10 December. The initiative, which Council supports, encourages Victorians to call out sexism, sexual harassment and disrespect towards women.
