For the past four years Council has promoted the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign. This is a global campaign that commences on 25 November, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and concludes on 10 December, Human Rights Day.
In support of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, Council has launched a footpath sticker campaign.
The footpath stickers have been installed at 12 locations across the City of Glen Eira including Town Hall, our four library branches, Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre, outside train stations and along major shopping strips.
Two stickers have been produced and contain the following messages:
- Sticker 1: Someone you know is experiencing Family Violence. For support contact 1800 RESPECT.
- Sticker 2: Stand Up. Speak Out. Stop Family Violence. For help, contact Safe Steps 1800 015 188.
Over the course of the 16 Days of Activism, Council will deliver a range of primary prevention activities and events including lighting up Glen Eira Town Hall orange, hosting an information stall in our Service Centre and promoting gender equity books in our libraries.
If you or someone you know is experiencing violence, contact 1800 RESPECT or 1800 737 732 for advice or support. In an emergency, contact Triple Zero.
