    Australians’ attitudes to violence against women and gender equality

    While Australians’ attitudes to violence against women and gender equality are improving, there are some concerning trends.

    Many people’s knowledge and attitudes to violence against women are out of step with the evidence, and with women’s experiences.

    It’s concerning that a substantial minority mistrust women’s reports of violence, and feel the problem of gender inequality is exaggerated. We need to do more to change these attitudes.

    Our attitudes to sexual consent are concerning. We need to focus on the abusive behaviour, not women’s choices.

    What is NCAS

    The periodic National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey, or NCAS, tells us how people understand violence against women, their attitudes towards it, what influences their attitudes, and if there has been a change over time. It also gauges attitudes to gender equality and people’s preparedness to intervene when witnessing violence or its precursors.

    Great to hear @AnneHollonds identifying the STACY & PATRICIA projects on all-of-family initiatives as a way forward in the #DFV area @ANROWS @davidgmandel @EleriB @DV_NSW https://twitter.com/AnneHollonds/status/1447331804084457474

    New research by @AICriminology into the impact of #COVID19 on #domesticviolence among women. Published by @ANROWS w/ @hayleyboxall1 and @A_W_Morgan. Learn more: http://bit.ly/3mJe2X4

    @A_W_Morgan echoes @NatsiwaCeo that violence risk is not equal for all. Some women could not safely participate so the findings of the @ANROWS #COVIDimpactDFV may not reflect the diversity of #FDV experiences and risks, which are not shared equally about all women and children.

    In terms of priority areas of focus, Anthony from @AICriminology says barriers to help-seeking must be a priority. They will not disappear when COVID ends. We must also consider how perpetrators might use programs, such as early access to super, as tools to exert control @ANROWS

    @AnneHollonds @ANROWS @AusHumanRights An excellent webinar. Thank you @ANROWS

    @AnneHollonds reminds @ANROWS #COVIDimpactDFV that we know #COVID amplified the risk to children and failures of broken systems made it more difficult to keep children safe as children became more invisible and more exposed to violence. #FamilyViolence

    #COVID19Aus has amplified problems for children says @AnneHollonds She highlights the lack of affordable housing as a major issue for parents, including young mothers, & children. The lack of access to mental health services is also a critical issue @ANROWS
