    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.

    Day 10 of the #16DaysofActivism2020 ! In 🇦🇺 we are lucky to have @ANROWS to help us deliver evidence which supports effective responses to violence against women and girls. Here’s @ANROWSCEO to tell us about their work here, and overseas with @kNOwVAWdata 🌏 @dfat

    Looking forward to working with @ANROWS and our Commonwealth partners on next stage of @AICriminology research into the impact of #COVID19 on #domesticviolence among women w/@hayleyboxall1. Huge thanks to @ANROWSCEO and team for their support. More here: https://bit.ly/33I8nIq

    Our new report led by @JWangmann shows most people who represent themselves in the Family Court
    - can't afford a private lawyer, but don’t meet the criteria for legal aid
    - find it difficult to obtain ongoing legal advice on their case.

    Our research report on self-represented litigants in family law proceedings involving allegations of family violence released today. https://twitter.com/anrows/status/1334669809963823106

    Today @JWangmann from @UTSEngage launched her new ANROWS research report in a session of the @lsaanz1 online Conference.
    The report highlights how self-representation creates barriers for women in the Family Law Courts.

    New ANROWS report:
    Women who have experienced family violence often can't afford legal representation in the #FamilyCourt.
    Many report that representing themselves disadvantages their cases.
