    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.

    1 in 4 young Australians believe if a woman sends a nude image to her partner, she is partly to blame if he it shares it without her consent.

    Sharing intimate images of a person without their consent is illegal.

    It is critical that when preventing violence against women and family violence, all forms of inequality are addressed. Addressing all forms of inequality will lead to creating an equal, safe and inclusive community. #16DaysofActivism
