IT could be compared to a war, an epidemic or a disaster, but Mayor Mark Eckel says men’s violence against women is still thought of as an “everyday affair”.

Cr Eckel made the remarks during his speech at yesterday’s Mildura White Ribbon walk and barbecue.

However, Cr Eckel was happy to see about 400 people take part in the march to end men’s violence against

“What that does is, that’s 400 people out there talking,” he said.

The march started in Langtree Mall and proceeded to the Mildura riverfront, where there were stalls as well as a bar­becue.
