"First, to borrow an imperative from safe-space culture, feminists must assume good-intentions from men. The world will never be a safe space for men if feminists fail to uphold safe space guidelines with interacting with them.

Women across Victoria will be inspired to get more active, thanks to powerful new campaign , hitting our screens from today.
Minister for Women Natalie Hutchins launched a local version of Sport England’s viral campaign, which inspired an incredible 3.9 million British women to ditch the couch and get active.
aims to build upon this success and empower women across the state to get active and overcome feelings of judgement, fear and embarrassment which are stopping them from getting active.
Three in five Victorian women don’t get enough physical activity, and over half say they worry about being judged while they exercise.
The ad features everyday Victorian women overcoming their fears and giving it a go, no matter their skill level, shape or size. The women, from right across the state, get their sweat on in a range of activities from boxing, cycling and roller-derby to netball and AFL.
The VicHealth initiative complements the Labor Government’s $220,000 , providing a new pathway to senior roles for women in sport.
Change Our Game is part of a $1 million investment to implement recommendations from the Inquiry into Women and Girls Sport and Recreation: a Five Year Game Plan for Victoria.
The initiative also complements the Labor Government’s $14 million investment to build female-friendly change rooms at grassroots clubs across the state.
