Preventing Violence Against Women in Melbourne’s East 2017-2021

What is Together for Equality & Respect (TFER)?

The TFER Collective Vision

A society where women live free from men’s violence – where every girl and boy grows up to be equally valued, heard and respected, and with equal access to opportunities.

The purpose of TFER

TFER provides a platform for organisations in the Eastern Metropolitan Region (EMR) to prioritise and work together on the primary prevention of men’s violence against women.

TFER provides sustained opportunities to build intersectional practice, collaborate, share skills, knowledge and resources, avoid duplication and strengthen the capacity of the EMR to enable gender equality and equal and respectful relationships between women and men.
