Stand Up

To acknowledge that gender based violence is an
issue in Australia and in your local community.

Speak Out

To raise awareness and highlight the realities of the
current domestic violence situation in Australia.

Take Action

Most of us are not violent but we all have a role to play in
the prevention of violence against women and children.



There are things in life that are simply wrong, things where there can be no qualification and no excuse – violence against women and their children is one of those things.

Violence against women and their children is a complex and deeply entrenched problem in Australia.

The NRL is committed to utilising its powerful voice and reach to stand by our expert partners - Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia, Our Watch and White Ribbon Australia - to take action to prevent violence against women and children.

It is the Game’s stance that violence against women and children is never acceptable.
