This project will encourage women and girls to participate, and pursue leadership roles, in their community and workplace through a showcase of the many women currently in leadership roles sharing their stories of success, challenges and words of wisdom! 
The local display will be shown to the public through a series of storyboards on display at Yeppoon Library during Queensland Women’s Week. In addition to this, a short video clip will be distributed throughout social media to stretch the powerful and inspirational messages beyond Livingstone.
Livingstone have many local amazing women doing great things, and they have the power to be inspirational role models to other women through this project. They will be involved and will encourage others to lead the way.

What is Domestic and Family Violence?

Domestic and family violence occurs when one person in a relationship uses violence or abuse to maintain power and control over the other person. Abuse is not always physical—it can be emotional, verbal, sexual, financial, or any other form of controlling behaviours that cause the person being abused to live in fear.

Domestic and family violence occurs among people of all ages, education, cultural and racial groups, sexuality and socioeconomic status. It can occur between people in spousal, intimate personal, family or informal care relationships.
