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.

Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities

ANROWS acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land across Australia on which we live and work. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and emerging.

We value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and knowledge. We are committed to standing and working with First Nations peoples, honouring the truths set out in the Warawarni-gu Guma Statement.

The National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010–2022 sets out a framework to coordinate action across Commonwealth, state and territory governments to reduce violence against women and their children. In the National Plan, ‘Indigenous communities are strengthened’ has been identified as a national outcome.

Below is a collection of resources, papers, reports and research projects relating to violence in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities.
