Our research

Violence against women and their children affects everybody.

"Employers may be required to train staff to speak up about workplace sexual harassment with a view to preventing it, or at least intervene earlier, & deal with power imbalances without excluding women" under legislation promised by Prime Minister @alboMP.

ANROWS strongly encourages all researchers with current projects related to violence against women and their children to register their research if it employs a robust, rigorous and ethical research design and has an Australian target population. https://hubs.ly/Q01bZzsY0

Since its relaunch in February 2021, the RAR has grown to include 116 external research projects from 52 separate universities & research organisations. A comprehensive RAR will enable researchers & funders to identify remaining evidence gaps & facilitate potential policy impact.

The Register of Active Research (RAR) is a centralised, publicly available database of current violence against women research that complements the ANRA. It enables @ANROWS, its stakeholders & research funders to monitor progress on addressing the priorities outlined in ANRA.

ANRA addresses five priority research areas where evidence is needed to support contemporary policy decisions: children & young people; understanding the intersecting drivers of #VAW; sexual violence & harassment; what works to prevent VAW; & what works in responding to #VAW.

Australia’s National Research Agenda to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children (ANRA) 2020–2022 is produced by @ANROWS in collaboration with the Commonwealth and state and territory governments of Australia.

"The combined findings of these studies reveals a tendency to frame domestic violence in a way that shifts blame away from the perpetrator, does not enhance public understanding of the complexity of the issue, sensationalises & omits certain forms of DV." https://hubs.la/Q01bMrrK0
