Join in one of the many live or online activities and play an important part in generating equality and respect in Whitehorse during November and December.
Whitehorse Celebrates Equality and Respect promotes understanding by participating in activities as part of the United Nations global campaign about violence against women. This international call to action engages people across the world to get involved in making change in their everyday lives. Violence against women, including family violence, is preventable.
Taking action to prevent violence against women is about promoting respectful and equal relationships – including partner relationships, families, groups, cultures and organisations, and in all the places where we live, work and recreate – as well as not standing by when we witness disrespect, sexual harassment and discrimination.
