The MAV has won a prestigious international award for its Prevention of Violence Against Women – Leading Change in the Victorian Local Government Sector booklet.
The booklet was selected from nearly 400 submissions by 146 organisations in 42 countries in the Avon Global Communications Awards. The $5000 award grant will fund the creation of a prevention of violence against women infographic for local government, which will be developed in partnership with Our Watch.
The booklet, funded by VicHealth in 2013, will help inform the infographic. It will include information on how gender equity and violence prevention practices can be implemented to all areas of council services. It will also encourage male leaders and staff to actively support campaigns to end men's violence against women.
