16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence
16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence has begun. The Walk Against Family Violence took place last Friday, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and it marks the start of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. The staggering list of women killed at the hands of ex/partners and family members is testament to the need for action on family violence. Family violence is a workplace issue. Gender-based violence is a human rights violation and as a union we stand against all violence and discrimination.
CPSU members joined walks right across the country. We are proud of the work that members do to address and reduce family violence, across many services, despite under staffing and under funding.
