Violence against women
Moonee Valley says no to violence against women
Violence of any nature is completely unacceptable, in any situation and in any setting.
Violence against women in particular is a very serious problem in Australia, where one in three women report experiencing physical or sexual violence at some time in their lives and where every week, at least one woman is killed by a current or former partner.
25 November is White Ribbon Day, a day to speak out against violence towards women. We strongly support this cause as part our Community Safety Program and Health and Wellbeing Plan.
