Gender Equity Victoria (GEN VIC) is holding a two-day participatory forum to query the nuts and bolts of our work, and ask the crucial questions about strategies in the prevention of violence against women. Speakers have a heavy duty vision, and strong organisational experience. This will be an engaging and meaningful forum to help design the future – not to be missed!

  • What do colonisation, immigration systems, justice and housing have in common?
  • How should we deal with structural forms of violence in our work?
  • What are the synergies and divergences between the prevention of family violence and of violence against women?Who are we including/excluding in this work?
  • How does gender fit in the prevention space? Where do we push to when it comes to mental health or sexual and reproductive rights?

DAY 1 (18th June 2019): Invisible towers – Systemic violence, the state, institutions and the prevention of violence against women

DAY 2 (19th June 2019): Who are we excluding? Intersections between prevention of family violence and prevention of violence against women.

Program now available!


This forum is part of GEN VIC’s Prevention of Violence Against Women Capacity Building Project funded by the Victorian Government.
