Victoria Against Violence 2018 - 16 Days of Activism | | Sunday, 25. November 2018
Family violence is a national emergency in this state and across Australia. There is an urgent need for change. All forms of violence are unacceptable, yet family violence is pervasive. It shatters lives, families and communities. Now in its fourth year, Victoria Against Violence – which coincides with the global 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence campaign – calls on our community to commit to actions that change the culture that drives family violence.
Orange is the universal colour representing a global movement to end violence against women. Inspired by the penalty system in soccer, the #OrangeCard is a social platform designed to give Victorians a way to speak up, speak out and become a genuine part of the solution to family violence. By calling out real life examples of gender inequality, marginalisation and discrimination with the #OrangeCard we can change the conversation.
