Bystander Action on Preventing Violence Against Women

A VicHealth report about the effectiveness of using bystander intervention to prevent violence against women was recently released. The report found that intimate partner violence is the leading contributor to death, disability and illness in Victorian women aged 15 to 44 years, contributing more to ill health in this age group than other well-known risk factors such as smoking and obesity. The report contains a call to action, asking people to intervene when they see sexism unfold in order to support gender equality and prevent gender based violence. (Click here to learn more.)

“We Can Stop It”

The “We can stop it” campaign highlights a recent shift in the rape laws in Scotland that broaden the definition of rape and create a range of new offences. With the tagline “We can stop it”, the campaign invites people, and in particular young men between 18 to 27 years old, to consider their own attitudes and behaviour and the role they can play in preventing rape.
