Australia: 'White Ribbon' accreditation to be introduced across whole of SA public sector.

I found out the other day that the South Australian Equal Opportunity Commission is overseeing the introduction of this initiative across all South Australian public sector agencies (raising serious questions as to whether the commission can impartially fulfill it's conciliatory functions).

Some agencies currently signed up:

SA Attorney General's Department

SA Department of Health and Aging (see also here)

SA Department of the Premier and Cabinet

Hopefully, they'll make up their mind whether it's 1-in-3 or 1-in-6 women who have experienced 'intimate partner violence' before more agencies perpetuate their propaganda. Don't expect them to explain why government departments, that answer to elected members of parliament, need "accreditation" from an NGO that holds no official capacity to accredit anything.
