Youth in Action – Family Violence Film

St Kilda Legal Service with the Gender Equity Steering Committee, (including the City Of Port Phillip, Stonnington City Council, Women’s Health in the South East and Bentleigh Bayside Community Health) have produced this film for young people to speak up and take action if someone they know is a victim or perpetrator of family violence. We have also created this handout – Take the Relationship Quiz and find out if his behaviour is OK?

Violence against women is never okay. Family violence includes physical, psychological, sexual abuse, stalking, damaging property and exercising social and financial control.

You can make a difference!

The Gender Equity Steering Committee thanks the City Of Port Phillip for funding this film project and Youthworx Productions for producing it.
