WATCH: Powerful ‘Dear Daddy’ video addresses violence against women

WARNING: This video contains coarse language and scenes of a sexual nature.

A confronting new video urging fathers to stop violence against women is going viral and all for good reason.

In a year where two Australian women have been killed every week at the hands of their partners and or ex-partners, this video is a timely reminder of the shocking culture of violence against women.


While some may find it confronting, the video created by aid agency CARE International, seems to hit home, with many branding it as “the most important video of 2015”.

‘Dear Daddy’starts as a letter from an unborn baby girl to her father, asking him to help prevent the violence she will likely endure at the hands of men in her lifetime.

Shocking statistics from the World Health Organisation reveal that one in three women worldwide will experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime.

The National Sexual Assault, Family & Domestic Violence Counselling Line – 1800 RESPECT (1800 737 732) – is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for any Australian who has experienced, or is at risk of, family and domestic violence and/or sexual assault.
