Tackling family violence and gender inequality

VCOSS submission to Senate Inquiry into Domestic Violence and Gender Inequality3 May 2016  |  

One in six Australian women have experienced physical or sexual violence and one in three have experienced emotional abuse from a current or previous partner since the age of 15. Family violence causes serious social, economic and health consequences for women, their children, and the broader community. This submission makes recommendations for preventing and responding effectively to family violence, and for addressing gender equality more broadly.
