Campaspe Shire Council will turn orange to celebrate 16 Days of Activism from 25 November to 10 December.
16 Days of Activism calls on organisations and individuals globally to raise awareness for women’s rights and gender-based violence.
This year’s theme is ‘Respect Is…' highlighting what respect means to each person and how that respect is exercised throughout each of our relationships.
Campaspe Shire Mayor, Cr Rob Amos said throughout the 16 Days of Activism, events will be held across the shire to support women and advocate for their rights.
“Council will collaborate with Campaspe Family Violence Action Group to host the Be Bold and Brunch at Radcliffe’s on 30 November.
“Be Bold and Brunch is open for anyone to attend and will share a range of resources and coping mechanisms to dealing with gender-based violence. It is specifically tailored to Council’s nine groups of priority.
“The brunch will feature guest speaker Dr Deb Parkinson, Executive Director Gender & Disaster Australia. Dr Parkinson will focus on women in disaster and addressing the harmful impacts of gender stereotypes in disaster,” Cr Amos said.
The Be Bold and Brunch event is free, bookings are required. RSVP’s for the event close on Monday, 27 November.
