A Grass-roots focus for the National Plan of Action to Reduce Violence against Women and Children

In July 2008, Lilla made a submission to the new National Council to Reduce Violence against Women and Children. We argued that an effective National Plan of Action needs to be informed by Australia’s long history of strong and diverse social movements addressing men’s violence against women and children. Indigenous women’s groups, immigrant and refugee women’s groups, feminist groups, human-rights activists and advocates have all formulated creative and effective initiatives which have facilitated women’s transformation from isolation and victimhood to empowerment and rights, making significant and lasting changes in the lives of many women and their children and society at large.
