Learn More About Our Works
Family, domestic and sexual violence is a major health and welfare issue. It occurs across all ages, socioeconomic and demographic groups but mainly affects women and children. Indigenous women, young women and pregnant women are particularly at risk
Women are at greater risk of family, domestic and sexual violence. One in 6 Australian women have been subjected, since the age of 15, to physical and/or sexual violence by a current or previous cohabiting partner (ABS 2017b)
The reasons behind this include cultural beliefs and the specific “role” of a woman or girl in society.
Women Empowerment and Leadership works diligently to help women become more respected and considered as equal partners, both in the home and in the community. We work to build solidarity groups to stand up and maintain that a community is all together in dealing with domestic violence. We bring awareness and educate males about this trend and help shift their views on violence against women.
With the work we do to empower women, we hope to one day eradicate the culture of domestic violence.
