We don't have a National Approach to Ending Violence Against Women? Ask our NSW Government

Our Watch has been established to drive NATIONWIDE change in the culture, behaviours and power imbalances that lead to violence against women and their children in Australia. Their vision is an Australia where women and their children live free from all forms of violence. Key to making this vision a reality is national, state and territory leadership to prevent all forms of violence against women and their children. Currently Our Watch has strong partnerships with and commitment from the Queensland, Victorian, South Australian, Western Australian, Tasmanian, Northern Territory, and ACT Governments AND the Australian Federal Government. The missing link to a UNITED National Approach to Ending Violence Against Women is our New South Wales Government.

Last year the NSW Department of Education missed out on extensive funding to develop localised prevention curriculum and approaches for our NSW primary schools so they could play their part in ending violence against women and their children. As a parent I want my local schools to implement approaches that will enable my daughter and her generation to develop strong, positive, and respectful relationships so they can live full lives free from violence and harm.  

I strongly believe that violence against women and their children IS preventable and can be stopped BEFORE it starts and I believe that Our Watch and ALL our governments play a pivotal role in this in Australia in making this a reality. If you, like me, are committed to ending violence against women and their children please sign this petition to lobby the NSW Government to join Our Watch's National approach so our children and communities in NSW can join this powerful prevention movement.
