Stop it at the start.

Violence against women and their children is a serious issue in Australia. Stephen strongly supports the federal government campaign to prevent violence against women and their children.

  • 1 in 3 women has been a victim of physical or sexual violence, since the age of 15, by someone known to them. (2012 Personal Safety Survey, ABS)
  • 1 in 4 women have been emotionally abused by a partner. (2012 Personal Safety Survey, ABS)
  • 1 woman dies almost every week at the hands of a current or former partner. (2015 Australian Institute of Criminology report)

There is a clear link between violence towards women and attitudes of disrespect and gender inequality.  Need to do everything we can to prevent this in our community. #auspol #drruff
