    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.

    Congratulations @NyadolNyuon I’m honoured to witness this award in recognition of your commitment to a real fair go for all! And you were fabulous on Q&A! #HRA2018 https://t.co/RwuCioyYC0

    A huge congratulations to @ChrissieFoster7 & The Hon. Peter Mclellan AM QC, who were presented with the Human Rights Medal at the #HRA2018 Human Rights Awards, for their tireless work campaigning for justice for survivors of institutional child sexual abuse. Very well-deserved!

    BREAKING: @RosCroucher will lead a national conversation on human rights in 2019 - to reimagine our human rights and freedoms. “At the moment our laws tell us what we CAN’T do and rely on complaints to enforce.” @AusHumanRights #HRA2018

    My first year of university was marred by cultural isolation, social instability & flat out just being hungry. An Indigenous college — committed to community reciprocity — would have made all the difference. This is what we've needed all along. https://t.co/hOfGV0WSaU

    A shining light in public life and an inspiring leader in the legal sector, from organising intersecting communities to combatting the influence of neo-facism. What a year! Congratulations @NyadolNyuon https://t.co/o4otK3BGTp
