Women should be safe and free from violence, discrimination and harassment.
The 16 Days in WA campaign runs from 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) through to December 10 (Human Rights Day) each year.
Did you know – “women are twice as likely than men to be sexually harassed in mining, with a prevalence rate of 74%.”
Source – Everyone’s business: Fourth national survey on sexual harassment in Australian workplaces (2018) by Australian Human Rights Commission.
Now in its sixth year, 16 Days in WA draws inspiration from the global movement for 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence to drive a change in culture, behaviour and attitudes that lead to violence against women and their children.
It is time to create change – to educate, motivate and advocate in your community, and stand up to stop violence against women.
Ending violence against women – it’s everybody’s business.
