    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.

    Every woman deserves safety. Over 2.7 million women have faced domestic violence since age 15.

    The time to act was yesterday.

    Hello! I'm keen to hear about victim-survivors' experiences and perceptions of police interviews in sexual offence cases in Australia.

    Please share and feel free to get in touch if you're interested in being interviewed for the project.

    We are absolutely thrilled to congratulate @MostynSam our ANROWS Chair, to the appointment as Australia's next Governor General.

    "Religion… is not immune, and needs to be a part of the work to tackle domestic violence, like all of us."

    Dr Tessa Boyd-Caine reminds us that religion is often overlooked in discussions about domestic violence in Australia, in @theage.

    Our Evidence to Action Director, Michele Robinson shared her expert insights on a panel at the recent 2024 Safe and Together Conference.

    "The vast majority of this violence does not end in homicide and it's just as important to pay attention to that."
