No Excuse for Abuse
The No Excuse for Abuse campaign aims to raise awareness of non-physical abuse and makes clear that there is never an excuse for any type of abuse against women. Non-physical abuse can be just as serious and harmful as physical or sexual abuse, but is often overlooked or excused.
The campaign, funded by the Australian Government’s Department of Social Services, includes social marketing content and material. This resource is to support people working to prevent violence against women in Australia.
The practice component of the campaign aims to provide the prevention of violence against women practitioners with resources they can use for prevention activities, e.g. training and presentations to stakeholders, policy planning, organisational development, and advocacy work. These resources will demonstrate the relationship between non-physical forms of abuse and the gendered drivers of violence, as identified by Change the story.
