The Line is Australia’s long-term, evidence-based social marketing campaign that encourages healthy, equal and respectful relationships by challenging and changing attitudes and behaviours that support violence against women.
The Line is for young people aged 12 to 20, and also supports parents, caregivers, teachers and other influencers.
The Line is an initiative under the Australian Government’s National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010–2022.
The campaign had been running since 2010 and from 1 July 2014, the Australian Government has funded Our Watch to deliver the campaign.
