    The National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women and Gender Equality Survey


    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."
