Andrew Wallace advocates for kids and women


Sunshine Coast MP Andrew Wallace is committed to making the internet a safer place for our children and protecting women from family and domestic violence, in his efforts to implement age verification on online pornography.


Wallace’s campaign addresses growing concerns about the links between pornography consumption and real-world violence against women.


“There is an irrefutable correlation between the access and use of hardcore pornography and domestic violence,” Mr Wallace said.


Studies show the link between pornography and domestic violence includes reinforced harmful gender stereotypes; unhealthy and sexist views of women and sex; and condoning violence against women.


A federal Coalition Government has committed to invest in age verification technology. Last month, the Albanese Government voted down the Opposition’s motion to trial age verification technology which would have helped keep children safe online, as recommended by the eSafety Commissioner.


“Other countries are already introducing these restrictions,” Mr Wallace said. “It’s time we do the same here in Australia.”


If you need help immediately call emergency services on triple zero. For family and domestic violence support services: 1800 Respect National Helpline: 1800 737 732; Kids Helpline: 1800 55 1800; Women's Crisis Line: 1800 811 811; Men's Referral Service: 1300 766 491.
