Communication about the issue of “Prevention of Violence Against Women” is necessary to raise awareness and address this issue, but often complicated due to poor understanding, myths and resistant attitudes. These barriers are however the main reason why it is necessary for practitioners to work with media and encourage the inclusion of prevention messages in new stories.
Acknowledging this issue the Australian “Domestic Violence Victoria”, in partnership with the EVA Media Action Group decided to create the guide “Eleven Ways to Boost Your Work with News Media –
How you can help the media report prevention of violence against women – A practical guide for violence against women sector workers”. A very good source of inspiration!
