AFL player and Tassie native, Ben Brown, and gender equality advocate and registered marriage celebrant, Hester Brown became Our Watch ambassadors in 2018.
They are passionate about using their platforms to be strong and vocal advocates for gender equality and the prevention of violence against women.
Ben and Hester are based in Victoria.
To me, gender equality isn’t about pitting men against women. Equality and inclusion will not come at the expense of anyone. We all benefit from an equal and inclusive society.
Supporting women’s progress in sport, reflecting on the language we use, and challenging the attitudes and behaviours of those around us are some steps we can take. If we all do this, we may just be able to create a society where all people are equal, regardless of gender.
