    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.

    Women and children with disability who are at risk of domestic and family violence need more cohesive support services, according to research led by #CaringFutures Prof Sally Robinson, and A/P Kylie Valentine and Dr BJ Newton from @UNSW @ANROWS https://blogs.flinders.edu.au/caring-futures-institute/2020/07/07/greater-intersection-needed-between-domestic-violence-and-disability-services/

    Great in-depth research report produced by @ANROWS which shows that, sadly, sexual harm to children can also come from their peers.

    #Domesticviolence behavior change programs often use confrontational & punitive approaches. New @ANROWS research shows approaches that emphasise empathy & trust are more likely to create behavioral & attitudinal change. https://www.anrows.org.au/publication/the-client-worker-relationship-in-mens-behaviour-change-programs-key-findings-and-future-directions/

    New @ANROWS report from @SPRC_UNSW colleagues @kylievfromSPRC @BJNewton_SPRC & Ciara Smyth showed a holistic approach to safety & a focus on barriers to support is key to responding to the needs of mothers/children with a disability in #DomesticViolence. https://www.anrows.org.au/publication/violence-prevention-and-early-intervention-for-mothers-and-children-with-disability-building-promising-practice/

    “There is a strong need for a whole-of-government commitment to the implementation and coordination of trauma-informed practice across sectors.”
