Victorian Government launches additional Respect Women ads following Eurydice Dixon’s death

The Victorian Government has launched new ‘Respect Women: Call it out’ ads following the death of a young Melbourne woman earlier this month.

‘Respect Women: Call It Out’ campaign, which first launched in May,  has created a new ad featuring a one minute ad showing a man staring at a woman on public transport while an onlooker debates whether or not he should intervene.

The onlooker then decides to walk in front of the man and block his view of the woman, admitting he barely has to do anything.

Another new ad shows a woman working behind the bar as one of the male customers says “oi fellas, wonder what she charges, have you seen what she’s wearing? Call her over and shout her a shot”.

His friend then debates whether or not he should say anything because he has had a couple of drinks and she works in a bar, so she can handle it.

“You can’t talk to people like that,” his friend then says.

The Respect Women: Call it Out campaign was created by The Shannon Company.
