Attitudes towards violence against women and gender equality among Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders Findings from the 2017 National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey (NCAS)

This report presents key findings from the 2017 National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey focusing on results for respondents who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.

The report explores the responses of the 342 NCAS respondents who identified as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander. The report found that most Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders have a good understanding of violence against women, support gender equality and do not endorse attitudes supportive of violence against women.

This report also draws on other research, including research by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholars and community leaders, to better understand the findings

This report is one of a suite of sub-reports and resources produced by ANROWS that draws on data from the 2017 NCAS, all available on the NCAS microsite.
