Men Say YES to Family Peace

Help end all violence against women, men, children and animals

We are living in a society that is in the midst of an epidemic of domestic violence and during Men’s Health Week this month it is time that men unite to SAY YES to Family Peace and start to put in place actions for ending all violence against women, men, children and animals. 

Whilst violence in our community affects all ages and genders, there has very understandably been an emphasis placed on raising awareness of violence against women because two-thirds of the victims of domestic violence in Australia are women.  As a result, many people tend to think of domestic violence as something that happens to women perpetrated by men only - but this is not the case. Both men and women are capable of violence in relationships. Domestic violence against men is under-studied, under-reported and they become the hidden victims of domestic violence.

The bill also makes several technical amendments which seek to correct drafting and minor policy matters, and provide other efficiencies for the courts and litigants. Submissions should be received by 29 April 2011. The reporting date is 23 June 2011.

Sydney, March 21 2011, 9am - 4pm, Forum Room 1, Hyde Park Inn, 271 Elizabeth Street, Sydney. In Australia up to one in three victims of family violence are male but the needs of male victims remain largely unmet even though the issue of men affected by violence in intimate relationships has been reported for many years. This is Australia’s only training program for health, welfare and community workers that provides information and strategies for working with men who are affected by violence in their relationships.
