Simone McGurk: The 16 Days in WA – Stop Violence Against Women Campaign
Her chat with Pete, Matt and Kymba
The annual 16 Days in WA – Stop Violence Against Women campaign takes place from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day.
To show our support, Pete, Matt & Kymba - resplendent in the campaign colour, orange - spoke to Simone McGurk, Minister for the Prevention of Family and Domestic Violence. Simone is working to establish a whole-of-government approach to prevent and respond to violence against women and children.
Now in its sixth year, 16 Days in WA is getting bigger and better every year. It aims to drive a change in culture, behaviour and attitudes that lead to violence against women and their children. Not all disrespect leads to violence, but all violence starts with disrespect – and all of us can play a role by calling it out.
You’re invited to join us and create change during 16 Days in WA – to educate, motivate and advocate in your community, and stand up to stop violence against women.

Ending violence against women – it’s everybody’s business.
