About the Event

In honour of International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women 25 November & Human Rights Day, 10th December, The W.H.Y. Campaign are hosting FREE global public online events. We have 16 days of diverse solution-focused perspectives on a high priority topic (Domestic, Family, Intimate Partner & Gender-Based Violence) that must be addressed from a human perspective to prevent and respect everyone's fundamental human right to safety & LIFE. 

"The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual international campaign that kicks off on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day. It was started by activists at the inaugural Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991 and continues to be coordinated each year by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership. It is used as an organizing strategy by individuals and organizations around the world to call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls." (United Nations Website) 

Meet Our Guest Speaker: Peter Thorpe, Gender Based Violence Practitioner : Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs. 

Striving to implement Domestic and Family Violence (Gender Based Violence) Informed Practice at the intersection of Child Protection. DFV is the corroding thread that harms almost 100% of women and children in CP. If fathers/partners are the problem then hold them, engage them, or use what measures we have (criminal justice) integrated service response to have eyes on them. Mum does not need to learn how to be a mother, she needs the system to hold him accountable and "stop" what his violence and abuse. Lets put the onus on him and not her.

Peter's presentation is all about why and how we can engage men/male partners in child protection, accountability, victim informed and lead practices and so much more.
