AWAVA endorsed the Australian Domestic and Family Violence Clearinghouse (ADFVC) submission on the consolidation of the anti-discrimination laws on 1 February 2012.

AWAVA strongly advocates for an express protection to be included in the consolidated Act for women who encounter discrimination in the workplace, or in securing accommodation or services, as a consequence of experiencing, or having experienced domestic violence.

The protections proposed by ADFVC would assist women who have experienced/are experiencing domestic violence and reduce further social and financial disadvantage.
