1. Respect is not just an Aretha song

1 in 4 young people don’t think it’s serious when guys insult or verbally harass girls in the street.

respect is more than an Aretha song. Your behaviour towards women, girls and gender-diverse folks sets a standard for how others will behave, including your kids. Respect others: listen when others speak, choose your words carefully, monitor your own body language.

About the 16 Days of Activism

Every year, between November 25 — the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women — and December 10 — International Human Rights Day — there are 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence.

This year we’ve created a series of posters for you to print out at work, home or your local library, and to put up in your kitchen, community hall, meeting room at work — wherever you like. Help create a world where women, nonbinary and gender-diverse people are safe, respected, empowered and able to make genuine choices in their lives.

Violence towards women, nonbinary and gender-diverse people is a community problem. Everyone in the community, from schools to sporting clubs, can play a role in changing the structures, norms and practices that lead to gender-based violence.

Some of these actions will be individual and some will be collective: gender-based violence is a structural issue that we all need to work together to address.
