Hedland Says No to Family Violence March

You’re invited to the 2021 Hedland Says No to Family Violence March on Thursday, 25 November. The March will take place in South Hedland, starting at Centenary Park on Leake Street at 6:30am. Following the march, you will hear from key guest speakers, a barbecue breakfast will be served and attendees can interact with the stalls.

This march is in support of the 16 Days in WA Campaign, which runs from 25th November to 10th December. The march is held on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

Aboriginal women and children experience family violence at disproportionately high rates, with Aboriginal women 32 times more likely than non Aboriginal women to be hospitalised from family violence

Family and domestic violence is the leading cause of homelessness for women and children.

The National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey (NCAS) found that:

1 in 5 Australians believe domestic violence is a normal reaction to stress, and that sometimes a woman can make a man so angry he hits her without meaning to.
1 in 3 Australians believe that if a woman does not leave her abusive partner then she is responsible for the violence continuing.
2 in 5 Australians would not know where to get outside help for a domestic violence issue.

Family and domestic violence does not discriminate. It impacts many people in the community – women, men and children of all ages and backgrounds. Family and domestic violence can be prevented, we encourage you to playing a role to stop it.
