From 25 November to 10 December is the United Nations 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence Campaign. It is a time to galvanise action to end violence against women and girls around the world. The international campaign originated from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute in 1991.
In support of this campaign, SI South Perth will be participating in the Annual Silent Memorial March which is held each year to commemorate and honour people who have died from family and domestic violence related incidents. Each year, between 18 and 24 people are murdered in Western Australia by a member of their family. Domestic homicides account for a quarter of all homicides in Western Australia and most commonly this is women being killed at the hands of their partners.
You are welcome to join us at what is a very moving and significant event in our effort to end domestic violence.
