End gendered violence and inequality


Join our campaign to keep women safe, end economic inequality, and invest in accessible reproductive healthcare.

By signing this, you will from us about our social justice and women's campaigns from time to time.

It’s time to take violence against women and gender inequality seriously.

A woman is being killed every 4 days, twice as many women killed compared to this time last year.

The women’s safety sector has called for $1 billion per year to be able to help everyone who seeks it, and the federal government is currently providing just under half that. 

Can you email your MP to call for improved funding?

One in three women experience abuse in their lifetime, while First Nations women, women from culturally diverse backgrounds, women in regional areas, older women, LGBTIQ women, and women with a disability, are even more likely to experience violence.

Labor has said it wants to end violence against women, but it’s not stumping up the funds to deliver that.

The total funding commitment to the National Plan over the next five years is $2.23 billion, less than half the $5 billion the women’s safety sector is calling for.

Women on low wages or income support are especially vulnerable without the resources to escape violent situations. Yet this government persists with the cruelty of keeping income support payments like JobSeeker below the poverty line. 

Governments must listen when our front line services say more funding will make a difference. No one should be turned away if they reach out for support and protection from domestic or family violence.
