The Governor and Ms Annus attended the launch of the annual 16 Days in WA – Stop Violence Against Women campaign. The theme for 2019 is, “speak out to stop violence against women”.
Based on the global 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign, 16 Days in WA is Western Australia’s contribution to these efforts and aims to raise awareness, motivate positive actions across Western Australia, and advocate on behalf of organisations that oppose violence against women.
From 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against
Women, to 10 December, which is Human Rights Day, individuals and communities throughout the state have an opportunity to show their support for ending violence against women, including family, domestic and sexual violence.
