Across the nation, 17 rallies will be held to show support for women in light of a drastic increase in gender-based violence.

Held by an indigenous-led not-for-profit ‘What Were You Wearing’, the event comes after 25 women died from gender-based violence nationally since the year began.

Bendigo residents will come together at Rosalind Park on Sunday, as part of the national rally against violence.
