Zero Tolerance. Working to end men’s violence against women.
Photography exhibition at Stills, Cockburn Street, exploring forms of violence against women that are still misunderstood, hidden and unacknowledged by mainstream society.
“As a mother of a young daughter I want her to grow up in a world of gender equality and zero tolerance of violence against women. I was at primary school when the original Zero Tolerance initiative was launched over 25 years ago and I still remember the impact of the original campaign; it really shifted my mindset about things that were normalised that shouldn’t be.” Alicia Bruce, Photographer
