Domestic violence refers to interpersonal violence that takes place in domestic settings, family relationships, and intimate relationships.
Domestic Violence, including Intimate Family Violence, has a significant impact on women and young people. Statistics show that young women aged between 18 – 24 years are more likely to experience physical or sexual violence than women of older age groups, and the perpetrator is more often an intimate partner.1
There are number of resources available for women and their children. However, we believe that resources for young women, even though the statistics show that young women are most vulnerable, are limited.
MONSU is holding an art exhibition in September to increase our conversation around Domestic and Family Violence and empower our community to engage in respectful relationships. Tackling this issue requires a community approach and we as representatives of the students at Monash have made a commitment to stop violence against women.
Young women are more likely to experience relationship/intimate partner violence and we want to exhibit how this may look through the eyes of a creative.
In order to achieve this, we need you!
