Key Statistics on Violence Against Women

Thursday, 15th May 2014

ANROWS, in collaboration with the Foundation to Prevention Violence against Women and their Children, have developed a number of infographics summarising key statistics on women’s experiences of domestic and family violence and sexual assault. The information is drawn largely from the 2012 Australian Bureau of Statistics Personal Safety Survey and shows that 1 in 3 women have experienced physical violence since the age of 15, while 1 in 5 have experienced sexual violence. The perpetrators of violence against women and violence against men are overwhelmingly men. These Fast Facts include rates of violence against women and men and key statistics about women’s experiences of violence.
