ANROWS Inaugural National Research Conference on Violence against Women and their Children

Local government plays an important role in prevention of violence against women.

"Statistics on the extent of domestic, family and sexual violence against women and their children are compelling and all the more confronting because these figures are increasing at the same time as Australia is making a major commitment to reverse the situation.  This requires coordinated activity by governments, service providers and professionals, researchers and the community in general."  Emeritus Professor Anne R Edwards, Chair, ANROWS.

ANROWS – a federal, state & territory initiative under the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children 2010-2022, is holding its inaugural National Research Conference at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne from 23-25 February 2016. 

Policy-makers, participants from the three tiers of government, practitioners and researchers will be encouraged to share experiences, ideas and advice on how this research can drive evidence based policy development, service responses and practice.
