Could have heard a pin drop. When Jimmy Bartel, in manhood, shares his experiences of domestic violence in boyhood.
This was for the Domestic Violence Resource Centre of Victoria at a lunch marking the birth of AFLW - a change that has catalysed true empowerment of women - and true male champions of women - in AFL footy. That changes sport in Australia, which changes Australia.

You see the person being abused is a reflection of you. We're on the same continuum. We are all connected. (Listen to my podcast next week with Ryan Hassan to know of what I mean!) She walks on eggshells like you do. She doesn't want to be rejected, like you don't want to. She doesn't want to cause conflict, like you don't. She questions her reality, like you do. She has a harsh inner critic, like you do. She needs her family, friends, partners, work colleagues, bosses, parents, community, media to all teach and reflect the same message: all abuse is criminal. It's not just unacceptable, it's criminal. When the laws and society can talk about abuse in every day conversations, and there are serious consequences for all abuses - no matter how small - because abuse is abuse, and if it's not addressed it grows bigger. When people take abuse seriously and their talk matches their walk and they're willing to take time to learn more and be proactive, only then will the ones who are trapped become free. But by then there won't be many who are trapped because they won't be caught in the smoke and mirrors that society teaches us and the person who uses abuse takes advantage of. Because the one who is trapped is a mirror and reflection of society. We are your shadow. It starts with you. Get clear. Get educated beyond the stereotypes. Come to New Voices and Answers Experience in Melbourne in 11th November and if you can't make it, contact Anita and ask her to bring this event to you!

@jrb03 packing Buddy Bags at @alannahmadeline this week. Jim has recently become an ambassador for #alannahandmadelinefoundation to continue his work against domestic violence. Well done Jim 👏🏼👏🏼

This week on the Outer Sanctum we discuss good omens and bad, and the end of the world as we know it. We unpack the commentary around language and responsibility in the wake of incidents of racial and ableist abuse with disability activist Jax Jacki Brown, and speak to Phil Cleary about his decades-long campaign to end violence against women, and the power of sport to be a force for good. We debate the merits of Wayne Carey being elevated to Legend status at the AFL Hall of Fame, and we round off with a tribute to the greatest of Danihers, Edna, care of the brilliant Libbi Gorr. #podcast #faceuptodv #whiteribbon #languagematters

What an incredible effort by @jrb03 raising over $160,000 through his #FaceUpToDV campaign this year. Today he presented The Luke Batty Foundation and Bethany with cheques for $70,000 each and Jim Stynes Foundation donated another @$20,000. Well done Jim. It's not just the funds raised but also putting the spotlight on the serious issue of domestic violence 👊🏼👏🏼👏🏼

The End! My #FaceUpToDV campaign has officially ended. I was so happy to present Bethany and The Luke Batty Foundation with Happy Gilmore sized cheques of $70k each plus an extra $10k each from the Jim Stynes Award. ($160,000 total, $80,000 each). Thanks so much to everyone who donated. It will go along way for many programs and work to help so many woman, children and men effected by domestic violence. #thankyoueveryone #bethany #lukebattyfoundation

CRC acknowledges the great career of Jimmy Bartel !

😖😥😖😥 Farewell @jrb03 A champion player, champion teammate and a champion bloke. My all time favourite player, I loved watching you play and the way you went about your footy, hard yet skilful, unselfish and always team first. Will miss seeing this legend wear the blue and white hoops. So many great memories #jimmybartel #geelong #geelongcats #champion #legend #afl #cats #wewillmissyou #thepeoplesbeard #faceuptodv #jimmy #brownlowmedalist #normsmithmedalist #premiershipplayer

This afternoon I was lucky enough to host a Q & A session with Jimmy Bartel at a work function. I am still trying to find the words to explain how much of a gentleman he is. After raising funds for his #faceuptoDV campaign, we put in a request for Jimmy to attend an afternoon focused on raising funds & awareness of the issue facing too many Australians; domestic violence. Jimmy's reply was a straight out 'yes'. No questions asked about money raised or the amount of people attending, Jimmy was in it for awareness alone, be it 1 person or 100 people. In a time of sportspeople too often making headline news for all the wrong reasons, Jimmy Bartel, as he has done for so long, is continuing to be a role model of the highest calibre, and today, he won more than one new fan. Myself included. A most sincere thank you from me to Jimmy for all he's done & I'm sure will continue to do.
