Prevention of Violence Against Women

Consideration resumed of the motion:

That this House:

   (1) notes that the rape and murder of Eurydice Dixon is the 30th instance of a woman being killed by men's violence against women in 2018;

   (2) recognises the importance of providing strong leadership in changing men's behaviour towards women to prevent such behaviour by men;

   (3) understands that:

   (a) at least one women a week in Australia is killed at the hands of a man, usually a current or former partner;

   (b) one in three Australian women has experienced physical violence since the age of 15; and

   (c) one in five women has experienced sexual violence;

   (4) acknowledges the social and economic impact that violence against women has on our communities; and

   (5) encourages all Australians to not wait until International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (White Ribbon Day) in November to be active, engage on this issue and take action.
