Preventing gendered violence Starts With Us

If we change unfair and harmful attitudes and treatment of people based on gender, we can stop sexual harassment, discrimination and violence before it starts.


Law practices, Victoria’s justice agencies and legal institutions can take action to promote gender equality and foster a culture of respect and inclusion.

The Starts With Us Framework – A guide to create gender equitable and safe legal and justice workplaces is an essential resource for reshaping our sector so that everyone is respected and safe at work

This project is funded by the Victorian Government as part of the Free From Violence strategy and is part of a state-wide coordinated effort to prevent violence against women. We thank our Steering Committee and Consortium Partners throughout this work.
