Providing the tools to take bystander action to prevent violence against women.

This three and a half hour active bystander training by Women’s Health Victoria (WHV) supports participants to speak up when confronted with everyday sexism and sexual harassment, as well as a range of behaviours and attitudes that justify, excuse, blame, trivialise or minimise violence against women. 

This training takes participants through the causes, prevalence and impact of family violence, sexual harassment and other forms of violence against women. Participants are provided with bystander tools to build the skills and confidence to speak out against violence-supportive attitudes and behaviours.
