A new campaign from Respect Victoria showcases Victorians challenging outdated gender stereotypes in their relationships and communities.
The campaign features conversations between friends, a couple, and colleagues who have made a choice to pave a new path.
Their conversations prompt us to think about the stories we all grew up with about gender, and the ‘right’ way to be a man or a woman.
Outdated gender stereotypes filter through our homes, families, relationships and communities, and put limits on us all. They create a culture where gender inequality and violence against women thrive.
The new campaign encourages Victorians to start having conversations to challenge these stereotypes.
“When I think about respect in relationships, I think about communication and being open to listening, and hearing each other.” – Ed
