The Andrews Labor Government is ramping up its bystander campaign to call out the attitudes and behaviours that lead to family violence.
Minster for the Prevention of Family Violence Natalie Hutchins today launched the second round of the Labor Government’s campaign, Respect Women: Call It Out.
The Respect Women: Call it Out campaign provides the tools necessary to call out disrespectful and sexist behaviour, a known driver of violence against women.
As a result of the Labor Government’s behaviour change campaigns more than 4 out 5 Victorians can identify what family violence is and its causes.
Victorians who have seen the campaign have more positive attitudes towards gender equality and are more likely to endorse the importance of respect and the impact of family violence.
The Labor Government has invested a record $2.6 billion to support victim survivors and create a Victoria free from violence.
