Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs & Citizenship
Any violence committed towards a human being, in any form, is unacceptable. It is time for all of us to speak up, to defend, to change and to act against violence against women. Men are part of the solution. And this is not just a task for men in leading roles – though they have a particular responsibility – but all men, in all aspects of their lives, towards, around and for their female family members, friends, partners and colleagues. As a husband, a father, a politician, I am honoured to take up my role as an Ombudsman for the White Ribbon Campaign and contribute to end violence against women.
