Speak Out, Shatter the Silence!
Violence against women IS a global epidemic.
As an International Spokesperson, and an advocate for White Ribbon and UN Women as well as your Mrs Australia International National Finalist I am on a global mission to educate and re-educate society on the importance of speaking out against violence against women, the importance of establishing and maintaining healthy relationships and the neccessary need for women's empowerment..
Through implementing new programs, generating awareness, establishing educational community campaigns and simply by speaking out we CAN make a difference to how each individual and society views gender based violence.
Having come out of an unhealthy relationship, I have a deep understanding of the psychological impact and lasting effects this type of behaviour can cause. I am also living proof that there is a better life out there, you can move forward in a positive way and that there is hope.
You can start your journey by taking the #HeForShe pledge today via UN Women and committing to take action against gender discrimination and violence in order to build a more just and equal world.
Did you know that no country in the world has achieved gender equality? Around the world, women disproportionately bear the brunt of poverty, are locked out of decision making processes and experience unacceptably high levels of violence.
Together we can change that.
Together we can assist in the creation of a world where women live free from fear and free from harm, living a life of peace and harmony.
