What do Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people think about violence against women and gender equality? Findings from NCAS

ANROWS has released Attitudes towards violence against women and gender equality among Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders – Findings from the 2017 National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey (NCAS). The findings suggest most Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people surveyed have good knowledge of key aspects of violence against women, support gender equality and do not endorse attitudes supportive of violence against women, and that there is a trend toward improvement on the overall measure of attitudes towards violence against women. The report identifies some of the strongest predictors of attitudes supportive of violence against women, including: broader attitudes endorsing gender inequality; having a low level of understanding of violence against women; holding prejudicial attitudes towards others on the basis of their disability, ethnicity or sexual orientation; and endorsing violence as a practice. The report notes “the large proportion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander respondents who agreed that reporting violence remains problematic for women indicates the importance of continued efforts to address institutional and community level barriers to reporting.” Read the report.
