    On the eve of #16DaysofActivism, we're urging policymakers to delve into our latest summary report featuring five recommendations for embedding victim-survivor voices into public policy reforms.

    🆕New report!

    👉 As we approach #16DaysOfActivism, we're urging policymakers to dive into Dr Lisa Wheildon's summary report, "Toward meaningful engagement: Key findings for survivor co-production of public policy on gender-based violence."


    ANROWS's latest report has prompted renewed, important conversations about the need for Respectful Relationships Education in schools.

    #Respect #Education #Research


    Schools can play an important role in responding to, and ending, gender inequality and gender-based violence.

    ANROWS’s latest report emphasises that early and consistent intervention through education is important in addressing gender-based violence: https://www.anrows.org.au/publication/respectful-relationships-research-report/

    It's fantastic to see more and more innovations to prevent sexual violence coming from broader sectors like transport.
    This one, from @TransportforNSW, aims to make New South Wales safer - you can track #YourGround now by heading to .

    As Australia builds an evidence base to end domestic, family and sexual violence, it’s important that we're aligned to a common framework.

    The Australian National Research Agenda identifies the evidence we need, and how it should be produced: https://www.anrows.org.au/publication/australian-national-research-agenda-to-end-violence-against-women-and-children/

    ANROWS’s upcoming webinar covers our latest research on the effectiveness of Respectful Relationships Education.

    Emeritus Professor Helen Cahill (@UniMelb) joins a panel of experts, who will discuss the research and share their insights.
