Gender Equity Victoria (GEN VIC) is the Victorian peak body for gender equity, women’s health and the prevention of violence against women.
We advocate for equality, wellbeing, and freedom from violence for every woman and girl in every community of Victoria.
Social media can be a hotbed of online harassment, especially for women and other marginalised people. If you’ve always wanted to step in and do something to prevent this kind of abuse – we’re here to help!
GEN VIC has developed a social media toolkit and video, the first of this kind in the world, to help people become active bystanders on social media.
The toolkit aims to help get you inspired to stand up for what you think is right online and step in when you see someone participating in or encouraging discrimination.
The toolkit, and accompanying videos, are now available!Learn more!
