It’s time for action to end violence against women and their children.

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is a time to take action to end violence against women. It starts on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women,  and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day. 

To raise awareness and as part of the international "Orange the world" campaign, watch our sporting role models from the AFL, ARU, Netball Australia and NRL pledge their support for gender equality and #NoExcuse4Violence.

What our sporting role models have to say

“More voices across the community mean there are more opportunities to stop violence against women." - 
Caitlin Thwaites, Australian Diamonds, Netball Australia.

“The responsibility lies with all of us, to speak up, to have the strength to call out sexism, victim-blaming and justifications for violence.” - Jarryn Geary, St Kilda Football Club, Australian Football League.

"Women in Australia are being hurt and killed by men they know - often by men that they love and trust. This is unacceptable." - Matthew Scott, Australian Kangaroos and North Queensland Cowboys, National Rugby League.

"Every woman and child deserves to be part of respectful relationships - we all have a role to play in making sure that's the attitude of our society." - Stephen Moore, Qantas Wallabies, Australian Rugby Union.
