    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.

    This report builds on earlier @ANROWS research to provide the most comprehensive survey of women’s experiences of intimate partner violence during #COVID19Aus. Read about the project here: https://hubs.la/Q012SRjd0

    The researchers also found that women who reported high levels of financial stress were 3 times more likely to experience physical & sexual violence compared to women who reported low levels of financial stress. Discover more key findings in the full report out on Monday 31 Jan.

    The #ANROWSConf2022 includes “Evidence to Action Workshops” where participants will unpack how the evidence impacts policy & practice.

    The workshops will be led by partner orgs including @MCWH1978 & @NTVorg.

    Workshop spots are limited. Get in quick https://hubs.la/Q012NxQz0

    Contrary to studies indicating social media might be a source of sexual violence (#SV), this study found that for Indonesian SV survivors social media provides support & is a "safe space that resists stigmas & stereotypes about victims of sexual violence."
