Boys behaving badly (and what to do about it)

Join an expert panel discussion on combating toxic masculinity and violence against women. The panel will address the issue of why men behave badly in intimate partner relationships and explore ways to mobilize for change.

We know the terrible (and terrifying) facts – one woman a week dies in Australia as a result of ‘intimate partner violence’. We know that since the age of 15, one in four women has experienced physical or sexual violence by a current or former intimate partner. We know that almost 10 women a day are hospitalised for assault injuries perpetrated by a spouse or domestic partner.

What we don’t know is why we can’t stop men from behaving badly in the first place. What we don’t know is how to change men’s behaviour fundamentally. How do we mobilise for change?

An expert panel, Elena Campbell, Ahona Guha, and Sherele Moody, chaired by Bronwyn Naylor, will debate how to combat toxic masculinity and the violence perpetrated against women.

*Tickets: *$20 non-members; $15 concession; $12 Sisters in Crime and Writers Victoria members. Tickets not sold prior to the event will be available at the door for $22/$18/$15.

Men or ‘brothers-in-law’ are welcome.
