    Australians’ attitudes to violence against women and gender equality

    While Australians’ attitudes to violence against women and gender equality are improving, there are some disturbing trends.

    Many people’s knowledge and attitudes to violence against women are out of step with the evidence, and with women’s experiences.

    It’s concerning that a substantial minority mistrust women’s reports of violence, and feel the problem of gender inequality is exaggerated. We need to do more to change these attitudes.

    Our attitudes to sexual consent are concerning. We need to focus on the abusive behaviour, not women’s choices.

    What is NCAS

    The periodic National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey, or NCAS, tells us how people understand violence against women, their attitudes towards it, what influences their attitudes, and if there has been a change over time. It also gauges attitudes to gender equality and people’s preparedness to intervene when witnessing violence or its precursors.

    @ANROWS new fact sheet shows the importance of understanding the context behind IPH statistics:
    Offenders are most likely to be male & the primary perpetrators of IPV prior to the homicide

    Is gender equality a problem in Australia?
    74% of women said yes; 56% of men said no.
    In 2017 we found that 2 in 5 Australians believe women exaggerate how unequally they are treated.

    So important to keep these figures in view: work to be done in changing the gender patterns that underpin them.
