Congratulations to Natalie Bell, her friends, colleagues and friends of Engaging Women who raised a solid $3,366.09 for Our Watch.
This fantastic result is the latest effort from our Ambassadors Program and has been acknowledged in a letter from Our Watch CEO Mary Barry:
We held this event less than two weeks ago and guests were informed that 17 Australian women had died this year at the hands of their intimate partners.
We are now up to 20.
Three more women added to this heartbreaking list, in such a short space of time.
Read our interview with Our Watch Chair Natasha Stott Despoja here.
Our Watch CEO Mary Barry says this latest donation will help Our Watch drive nationwide change in the culture, behaviours and power imbalances that lead to violence against women and their children.
Engaging Women is committed to raising awareness and giving other women and opportunity to extend a hand to women and children in crisis.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to hold your own event or find out how the program works.
And once again massive thanks to Nat Bell and your crew for digging deep on the night.
