1,479,900 Australian women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. That’s one in six Australian women.*
#istandup – take the challenge, support domestic violence survivors


How will you take your stand?

Spend the day on your feet.

Stand alone or in a team.

Stand with colleagues, with friends, with family.

Stand up at your desk, with your kids, at your school.

We challenge you to work, play, teach, eat, drink or socialise on your feet.

Stand up. Be counted. Share the message that we won’t tolerate violence against women.
