I am very honoured to play a part in raising awareness of violence against women and helping to reduce the rates of sexual assault and domestic violence in Australia.

"Violence against women and children is completely unacceptable in any context. Unfortunately we still live in a world where gendered violence is still a problem our society is dealing with.

As a person who is passionate about gender equality and who truly believes in the importance of respect, I am so proud to work with an organisation Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia which has such a vital role in raising awareness about violence against women, and educating and supporting our communities until sexual assault and domestic violence are completely eradicated.

We all have a role to play and I am committed to helping create a more equal and tolerant world."
