Event description

Gender Equity Victoria  is hosting a two-day participatory forum exploring crucial strategies in the prevention of violence against women.

What do colonisation, immigration systems, justice and housing have in common? How should we deal with structural forms of violence in our work?

What are the synergies and divergences between the prevention of family violence and of violence against women?

Who are we including/excluding in this work? How gender fit is our prevention space? Where do we push to when it comes to mental health or sexual and reproductive rights?

Day 1 Invisible towers - Systemic violence, institutions & the prevention of violence against women.  

  • colonisation
  • border control and immigration
  • prisons & policing
  • care facilities and services, and
  • women in isolated situations

Day 2 Being inclusive? Intersections between prevention of family violence & prevention of violence against women.

  • LGBTQI+
  • elders
  • gender diverse
  • young people
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • homeless people and those in share or group homes
  • people with disabilities
