Cr Giudice said the event aimed to raise awareness about violence against women, empower people to call out violence when they see it, and create an environment where people who have experienced violence are able to speak out and seek support.
“MeToo is a global, social movement that has brought to light hundreds of high profile reports of sexual misconduct and violence against women.
“MeToo now provides an instantly recognisable label for many of the issues that Council has been working to address for some years now.
“Brimbank Council is committed to preventing violence against women, promoting gender equality, and supporting victims of violence.
“We believe that Local Government can and should take a lead role in promoting gender equity and preventing family violence and violence against women, as well as supporting people who have experienced violence.
“We can do this through sharing knowledge, demonstrating best practice, and strengthening community,” Cr Giudice said.
Council is in its fourth year of implementing the "Brimbank City Council’s Plan to Prevent Men’s Violence Against Women: Towards Gender Equity 2015-2019".
Under this plan, Council works with partners and the broader community to advance gender equity and promote the optimal health, safety and wellbeing of Brimbank residents.
