First evidence-based framework to prevent gendered violence
November 10, 2015
Australia now has its first evidence-based framework for preventing violence against women. No country has ever had such a framework, which will be used to guide governments, communities and organisations in developing policies to prevent and eradicate gender-based violence.
Michaela Cash, Minister for Women, said that evidence-based guides are essential for governments and agencies to adequately address violence against women.
Launched by Natasha Stott Despoja, Ambassador for Women and Girls, the framework is part of a 12-year national plan to challenge gender roles and stereotypes, promote women’s independence, and ultimately achieve an Australia that is free from violence.
