Forums aim to stem violence against women and children

Two forums will be held in Bendigo this month as a local group plans its submission for the federal government's plan to reduce violence against women and children.

 

The Loddon Gender Equality and Violence Prevention Consortium will hold the forums on May 12 and 19 and are hoping to hear from locals.

 

The group says it's been encouraged by the number of residents who attended the Bendigo March 4 Justice rally.
