We close November with a sharp focus on domestic violence, as we kicked off 16 Days of Activism on November 25th, a date shared by White Ribbon Day and the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. For the next sixteen days we will be sharing an image of MCWH staff, communicating what needs to be done to end violence against ALL women.
We are also immensely proud to be launching the ASPIRE project- a collaboration between the University of Melbourne, the Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health, and the University of Tasmania. ASPIRE is a community-based, participatory research project funded by Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS) which gathered evidence about immigrant and refugee women’s experiences and concerns of family violence. If you haven’t as yet done so, you can still register to attend the launch here.
The launch will also feature a photovoice exhibition with powerful photos taken by research participants. One of the photovoice participants, Ruby, is featured as this month’s 60 Seconds interview
Until next time,
The WRAP team
