Today, December 10 is #HumanRightsDay.

The day calls on us all to stand up for human rights for everyones rights regardless of race, colour, religion, gender identity, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Disrespect for basic human rights continues to be widespread in all parts of the globe. Violence against women is one of the most prevalent violations of human rights in Australia and around the world.

It is important we all play a role in calling out behaviour that supports sexism, discrimination, and inequality. This action promotes equality and respect across the whole community.
