Our research

Violence against women and 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.


News and events

ANROWS hosts events as part of its knowledge transfer and exchange work, including public lectures, workshops and research launches. Details of upcoming ANROWS activities and news are available from the list on the right.



ANROWS was established by the Commonwealth and all state and territory governments of Australia to produce, disseminate and assist in applying evidence for policy and practice addressing violence against women and their children.



To support the take-up of evidence, ANROWS offers a range of resources developed from research to support practitioners and policy-makers in delivering evidence-based interventions.


Perpetration of workplace technology-facilitated sexual harassment

This fact sheet explores what workplace technology-facilitated sexual harassment (WTFSH) is, who is perpetrating it, and what prevention and responses could look like.

The findings are drawn from a national perpetration survey, interviews with industry stakeholders and focus groups with young people (aged 18–39 years), as part of the ANROWS research project, “Technology-facilitated sexual harassment in the workplace: Perpetration, responses and prevention”, led by Asher Flynn with Anastasia Powell and Lisa Wheildon.

This resource is useful for anyone who wants to build an understanding of WTFSH among their employees, colleagues, broader organisation or sector. Organisational leaders, people and culture or human resources leads, as well as worker advocates and educators will also find it a useful tool to include in training. It is also a useful resource for those looking to prevent workplace sexual harassment under positive duty requirements.
