Research

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.

Prevention

Two outcomes of the National Plan are focused on stopping violence against women before it starts, including through the promotion of gender equity and respectful relationships.

Along with Our Watch, which has been established to drive nationwide change in the culture, behaviours and power imbalances that lead to violence against women and their children, ANROWS is committed to research to support prevention responses.

Below is a collection of resources, papers, reports and research projects relating to preventing violence against women in Australia.
