Women’s Health West, along with plenty of help from our partners, launched a resource about the prevention of violence against women at the Newport Substation in June.
‘Act To Prevent Men’s Violence Against Women: a Guide for Community Action’ aims to support community groups in Melbourne’s west to take action to prevent men’s violence against women.
The guide details practical things you can do every day to prevent men’s violence against women. It includes important information to consider before you take action, as well as links to further resources.
