    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.

    @ANROWS In addition to these impt recommendations, also need a #childcentred approach & a new independent system which feeds into family law court & child protection. Raised by @HigginsDaryl at @familiesaust webinar today.

    "The new consent laws may have far-reaching positive consequences, not just in legal terms, but for the intimacy and quality of sexual encounters and relationships." @ANROWS NCAS youth report data used in this @CharlesSturtUni news piece on sexual consent: https://hubs.la/Q01fJVcM0
