WHITE RIBBON AUSTRALIA

In Australia, one in six women has experienced physical violence. Violence against women and children has impacted our own lives and our work, and we stand strongly against it.

 

2% OF EVERY PURCHASE YOU MAKE GOES TOWARDS ENDING GENDERED VIOLENCE

The founder of Embracing Bella, Bella Brown, has organised an ongoing event for the next to help raise awareness of White Ribbon Australia’s work to end men’s violence against women. Embracing Bella will donate on your behalf 2% of your purchase directly to White Ribbon Australia. All funds raised will support primary prevention initiatives in schools, workplaces and the broader community.

Paula wants help provide a space to support change, we believe change is possible given the right mindset, education and tools. Embracing Bella was founded to not only design and provide beautiful empowering clothing, but to use that clothing to inspire women to have conversations and create opportunity to open up these subjects.

 

WHAT BETTER WAY TO MATERIALISE THAT SUPPORT THAN TO ENSURE EVERY ORDER WE RECEIVE CONTRIBUTES TOWARDS MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN OTHER WOMEN'S LIVES TOO?

Make your purchases count towards ending gendered violence. 2% of all Embracing Bella sales will go towards White Ribbon Australia programs that aim to strengthen a culture of respect and equality through primary prevention programs, while challenging the attitudes and behaviours that lead to violence.

If you are experiencing violence or suspect someone else is, please contact 1800 RESPECT for advice and support. In an emergency, call the police on 000.

 


LET'S LEAD THE CHANGE AND START A CONVERSATION TODAY!

“Violence against women is at epidemic proportions. Devastatingly, over 12 months, on average, one woman is killed every week in Australia as a result of intimate partner violence.”

“Murder is at the pointy end of a broad spectrum of violence against women. A spectrum that encompasses financial, verbal, emotional, psychological, physical and sexual abuse, as well as workplace harassment. They all form part of a devastating cycle of violence.

“And the women lost are not just statistics – they are wives, mothers, daughters, grand-daughters, sisters, aunts, nieces, friends and colleagues. Most importantly, they are people, and the impact of the violence perpetrated against them is widespread and long-standing.

“Violence against women is never a private issue. We are providing this event to help break the silence around violence, to raise awareness of the issue as well as funds to support work to bring violence against women to an end.

“Here at Embracing Bella we want people to know that violence against women is unacceptable, it is never the victim’s fault, help is always available and if you see something you should definitely say something. People need to know that they can make a difference; bringing an end to men’s violence against women will take a whole of community approach.”
