Welcome to the latest edition of the AWAVA Weekly Round-Up. This week many of the links we share address misconceptions and myths relating to violence against women. The release of the findings from VicHealth’s National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey have highlighted, once again, that an alarming number of Australian’s accept and excuse violence against women. Further, many still apportion blame to the victims of this violence. In order to prevent gender-based violence it is vital that these attitudes are addressed and that we build a no-tolerance approach to violence against women across the country.

A Quick Note from the AWAVA Team:

Our Weekly Round-Up wizard will be taking some much needed leave as of the start of next week, and the Weekly Round-Up will be taking a brief pause. We’ll be back with the next edition of the Round-Up on Monday, 13 October!
