“Violence and sexual assault against women is totally unacceptable. Sadly, statistics tell us that one in three Australian women have experienced physical violence since the age of 15, and almost one in five have experienced sexual violence. The Coalition Government understands that in order to prevent violence against women and their children, attitudes around gender equality and violence need to change”
