EXPRESSIONS OF FREEDOM – HOP HOP AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
I am proud to be a part of this great event, which is happening tomorrow night at The Reverence Hotel in Footscray! This event will feature some of the most talented local artists around, all while raising much needed funds and attention for a good cause- White Ribbon.
Intimate partner violence is the most common type of violence against women, affecting 30 per cent of women worldwide, according to the 2013 World Health Organization report
Over 12 months, on average, one woman is killed every week as a result of intimate partner violence.
A woman is most likely to be killed by her male partner in her home.
Domestic and family violence is the principle cause of homelessness for women and their children.
Intimate partner violence is the leading contributor to death, disability and ill-health in Australian women aged 15-44.
One in three women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence perpetrated by someone known to them.
One in four children are exposed to domestic violence, which is a recognised form of child abuse.
The cost of violence against women to the Australian economy is estimated to rise to $15.6 billion per annum.
One in five women experience harassment within the workplace.
One in five women over 18 has been stalked during her lifetime.
Exceptionally talented artists, a great night of hip hop and a very important cause should be all the reason you need to come along.
