Our Watch seeks to engage with the media through specific programs and guides for journalists who report on violence against women and their children. 

 
Our Watch will work with survivors, the violence against women sector and media, to build on successful projects already operating and develop initiatives. The aim is to build the media’s understanding of prevention, and its ability to report on the issue in a factual, ethical and sensitive way.
