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.

Are we there yet? Australians’ attitudes towards violence against women & gender equality: Summary findings from the 2017 National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey (NCAS)

The National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey, or NCAS, is a resource for anyone wanting to understand and prevent the serious and prevalent problem of violence against women.

The National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey, or NCAS, tells us:

  • about people’s understanding of, and attitudes towards, violence against women;
  • about their attitudes towards gender equality;
  • what influences their attitudes;
  • if there has been a change over time; and
  • whether people are prepared to intervene when witnessing abuse or disrespect towards women.

This is a summary of the 2017 NCAS results, focusing on the Australian community as a whole.

While Australians’ attitudes to violence against women and gender equality are improving, there are some disturbing trends.

A collection of resources to help assist in the communication of NCAS findings and messages can be found on the NCAS microsite
