    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.

    Very excited to see my latest paper on intimate partner sexual violence published in @JOFVTweets! Paper explores women's experiences of IPSV through the lens of "emotion work": https://rdcu.be/b7C94 @UniMelbMDHS @AustSoc @safer_families @CasaForum @ANROWS

    Latest data from @aihw shows women are the main recipients of specialist #homelessness services, and that financial difficulties and #DFV are among the most common reasons for them accessing services. #olderwomen

    Great start to the NOTA 4 day webinar!! Tomorrow is @ProfSarahBrown chairing a session with @DrKellyRichards, @carolronken & @jodi_death on their @ANROWS funded research on victims perspectives of the management & reintegration of people who have committed sexual offences.

    Women expect health practitioners to provide choice & control, practical action, recognition of their experiences & emotional connection. Our SUSTAIN study found health practitioners value such woman-centred care & agency #domesticviolence @hegarty_kelsey @ANROWS
