National Day to Stop Men’s Violence against Women

Australia – November 25 has been declared International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Today a group of male supporters slipped on a pair of heels and gathered at Parliament in Canberra,  the capital of Australia.

The campaign aims to raise awareness and draw public attention to the issue of violence against women. 

According to the United Nations, 35% of women and young girls have experienced violence in some way. The rate in some countries is every seven out of ten women.

Male supporters included employees from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Australia.
