The City of Casey is thrilled to launch its 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign with guest speaker Natasha Stott Despoja.
The Founding Chair of Our Watch, Natasha was also recently elected to a top-level United Nations committee fighting for equality for women, making her the first Australian member in nearly 30 years.
Between 2013-2016, Natasha served as Australia’s Global Ambassador for Women and Girls; responsible for the promotion of women’s economic empowerment, women’s leadership, and the reduction of violence against women and girls. In 2018, she was named as one of the Top 100 Global influencers on Gender Policy.
Natasha’s keynote speech will be accompanied by a presentation from the South East Community Links, who will be highlighting their work within our multicultural communities in Casey.
The 16 Days of Activism campaign, led by Respect Victoria, aims to raise awareness of violence against women, with the core theme of this year’s campaign ‘Respect Women: Call it Out’. The campaign will run from 25 November until 10 December.
