Join ANROWS for a conversation about the results from culturally and linguistically diverse respondents to the 2017 National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey (NCAS). Conducted by ANROWS, the survey examined understandings of violence against women, attitudes towards violence against women, and attitudes to gender equality.

Among the 17,500 Australians surveyed, nearly 3000 reported being born in a country where English is not the main language spoken. This webinar launches the research report on community attitudes among this sub-sample of respondents.

  • Sean Ryan, Graduate of AMES Prevention of Violence Against Women Leadership Project

Moderated by Pino Migliorino, ANROWS Board Director.
