    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.

    A @Respect__Vic paper "argues criminalisation alone "will not prevent #coercivecontrol as it is an inherently reactive approach". Primary prevention, it says, is the only way to reduce the overall prevalence of family violence." https://hubs.la/H0Xx68S0

    “With these perpetrators, we will not wait for a triple-zero phone call and for a domestic and family violence incident to reach the point of crisis,” acting Supt Ben Martain from @QldPolice said.

    "We have a zero tolerance to sexual harassment. And I think that sets us apart," said Peter Allen, chief executive officer of @ScentreGroup one of 10 Australian employers listed on the global Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index.
