Our research

Violence against women and their 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.

Webinar: What the NCAS is, how it’s useful, and what’s to come

  • 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm, Wednesday, 7th March 2018

In the lead-up to International Women’s Day, ANROWS (with the support of VicHealth) will be hosting our first webinar on the National Communality Attitudes towards Violence Against Women Survey, or the NCAS.

This webinar will interest those working in the prevention of violence against women in a range of settings, from policy and practice to education and advocacy. If you’ve ever found it difficult to find the evidence you need to challenge commonly held myths around violence against women or explain the link between violence against women and gender inequality, this webinar will help.

‘What the NCAS is, how it’s useful, and what’s to come’’ will provide an overview of the NCAS and findings from 2013, discuss how the survey can be useful in your work through practical examples, and offer information about the exciting changes and new components of the next NCAS (to be released late 2018/early 2019). There will also be a Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
