cam­paign was also about recog­nis­ing the pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion men could make to pre­vent­ing do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

Ac­cord­ing to the White Rib­bon web­site, “build­ing up gen­der equal­ity and re­spect­ful re­la­tion­ships be­tween men and women can change at­ti­tudes and pre­vent vi­o­lence,” she said.

Aus­tralian Bureau of Statis­tics data from 2012 re­veals that 46.4 per cent of men have ex­pe­ri­enced vi­o­lence by a male per­pe­tra­tor since the age of 15.

Ms Willyams said most of the time this vi­o­lence had been per­pe­trated by an un­known male.

“We must re­mem­ber that men are also vic­tims of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence,” she said.

South Perth Ro­taract Club mem­bers Ivy Willyams, Ade­laide Kohler, Hamish Kohler and Sam Few­ster hope to put an end to do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. MONEY raised from the on­line auc­tion of an amethyst pen­dant (pic­tured) will help fund breast can­cer care nurses for Breast Can­cer Care WA and the McGrath Foun­da­tion.

Leed­erville jeweller Rohan Milne spent more than 20 hours cre­at­ing the solid 18ct white gold hour glass-shaped pen­dant, which is set on a white gold trace chain, with help from Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group edi­tor Denise S. Cahill.

Worth more than $6000, the pen­dant fea­tures two pear­shaped deep pur­ple amethyst gems with white di­a­mond de­tail.
