In support of the UN Women Australia Spring Campaign: Don’t be a Bystander: Say NO to Violence against Women, Young UN Women Australia – Melbourne Committee invites you to a panel discussion on alternative forms of violence and the importance of supportive community action. The forum will be held on October 22nd, 6pm, at the Bella Union Hall in Melbourne. Speakers are Anastasia Powell, Roshan Bhandary and Kelsey Hegarty.
The Forced: Knowing Violence, Taking Action forum will focus on non-physical violence, such as emotional abuse, financial abuse and social isolation. It will explore the different types of force and emotional violence that manifest in relationships. Importantly, it will involve practical discussion of what individuals can do to support women experiencing emotional abuse. We hope by the end of the night you will have the tools to make a difference in the lives of women, and men.
