One in Three Campaign launches Respectful Relationship poster series for young males

One in Three has produced a series of seven free digital poster designs aimed at educating boys and young men about respectful and healthy relationships. Covering issues such as sexual abuse/unwanted sex, social abuse/isolation and physical and emotional abuse, the posters aim to encourage young males not to accept unhealthy or abusive behaviours in their relationships. If the posters are to be used in a co-ed (mixed sex) context, we would expect that other posters be displayed giving similar messages to girls and young women. There are many such posters available from other organisations.

The posters are available as high-resolution PDF files in A3 size, in 7 designs. They are ready to download, print off and display at your school or service.

One in Three responds to No To Violence and Dr Michael Flood

The One in Three Campaign has responded to a reply by No To Violence to a question taken on notice about male perpetrators at the November 5, 2014 hearing of the Senate Committee inquiry into Domestic Violence. Our response, lodged with the Senate Committee inquiry in December 2014, is finally able to be released after being accepted by the Committee as correspondence some 5 months later. Our response also contains a detailed analysis and rebuttal of claims made in a seminar paper by Dr Michael Flood titled "He Hits, She Hits: Assessing debates regarding men’s and women’s experiences of domestic violence," that was presented a number of times during the second half of 2012.

Report on One in Three's involvement with the Federal Senate Inquiry into Domestic Violence

In July 2014, the One in Three Campaign lodged our written submission to the Senate Standing Committees on Finance and Public Administration’s Inquiry into Domestic Violence in Australia. Some ten months later, our dealings with the Inquiry have finally concluded and we are able to talk about our experiences. This has been an eye-opening experience for the men and women of One in Three. We were prepared for rigorous questioning and challenging of our views, but not for the levels of direct, unsubstantiated and unprovoked attack by some members of the Senate Committee and other organisations appearing before it. What follows is a detailed account of our experiences, and is unfortunately lengthy. However we feel this level of detail is necessary for reasons of transparency.

Reminder: submissions to Royal Commission into Family Violence close tomorrow, 29th May

http://www.rcfv.com.au/Submissions

The closing date for written submissions is Friday, 29 May 2015.

Written submissions help to improve the Royal Commission's understanding of gaps and problems in the response of our system, and our society, to family violence, as well as identify existing good practice and potential solutions.

The Royal Commission into Family Violence is seeking written submissions on any issues relating to its  terms of reference. We welcome input from those who have experienced or who have come into contact with people affected by family violence and from any others whose experiences and ideas may assist the work of the Royal Commission.

An issues paper has been developed to provide general guidance to individuals and organisations in making their written submissions.  The themes and the questions raised in the issues paper are guides and examples only.  There is no need to address any or all of the questions posed and you may include issues and/or solutions that have not been discussed in the issues paper (as long as they fall within the Royal Commission's terms of reference).

In addition, there is no particular format or length required for a submission. However, all submissions must carry a submission cover sheet (see below) and be sent in by Friday, 29 May 2015.
