16 Days of Activism


25 November to 10 December

On average, a woman in Australia is killed by a man they know every 10 days. This violence is not inevitable - it is preventable.

The 16 Days of Activism is a global campaign to end gender-based violence. Every year, communities around the world join the call to prevent and eliminate violence against women and girls.

Council is committed to building a community that is respectful and where women can live free from violence, and the fear of violence. During these 16 Days of Activism, we will host and support a number of events and activities across the shire to encourage community conversation, awareness, skills building and action.

Prevention of violence is a challenge that belongs to us all. We encourage community to get involved and stand with victim-survivors as we move towards a culture where women are safe, equal and respected.

Details of each event will be added below when available. If you would like to add your event to the list, email Melissa Telford at comdevadmin@mrsc.vic.gov.au
