There are things in life that are simply wrong, things where there can be no qualification and no excuse – violence against women and their children is one of those things.
The NRL is committed to utilising its powerful voice and reach to stand by our expert partners – Our Watch, White Ribbon and the Full Stop Foundation – to take action to prevent violence against women and their children.
Violence against women and their children is a complex and deeply entrenched problem in Australia, as evidenced by the below statistics*
However statistics are just numbers, until you put real lives to them. This year's Voice Against Violence campaign focuses on a U16s junior league team, bringing the statistics around gender based violence to life by using the women in their lives.
Working closely alongside our Official Partner Holden and our expert partners, our programs, education and support channels are empowering people in our community to be advocates for positive social change.
We lead by example and by doing this, we create a standard of behaviour and culture around respect towards women that runs through our football clubs but also our schools, workplaces and society as a whole.
It Only Takes One Voice, Your Voice.
