Our research

Violence against women and children affects everybody. It impacts on the health, wellbeing and safety of a significant proportion of Australians throughout all states and territories and places an enormous burden on the nation’s economy across family and community services, health and hospitals, income-support and criminal justice systems.


News and events

ANROWS hosts events as part of its knowledge transfer and exchange work, including public lectures, workshops and research launches. Details of upcoming ANROWS activities and news are available from the list on the right.



ANROWS was established by the Commonwealth and all state and territory governments of Australia to produce, disseminate and assist in applying evidence for policy and practice addressing violence against women and their children.



To support the take-up of evidence, ANROWS offers a range of resources developed from research to support practitioners and policy-makers in delivering evidence-based interventions.

Why? Your tax-deductible donation will help build knowledge and support the development of programs that can help address violence against women and their children.

Evidence supports sound decision-making by policymakers and program designers, ensuring limited resources are put to best possible use. Evidence to guide decision-making is needed for work to prevent violence before it starts, to support women and their children after violence occurs, and to hold perpetrators of violence accountable and stop their violence.

The circumstances of women subjected to violence, and those who perpetrate violence against women, are diverse – what works in the general population may not be effective for those with disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and culturally and linguistically diverse communities, and rural and remote communities, for example.

Much more work is needed to be sure all women and their children, no matter their circumstances, can live safe and free from violence. You can be part of the solution. Your donation will support research that otherwise would not be done.

ANROWS is a registered gift recipient with the Australian Tax Office. ANROWS has a public fund which is set up to enable the organisation to accept tax-deductible donations.
