ANROWS – Webinar: Attitudes towards violence against women and gender equality among people from non-English speaking countries (18 July)

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.

Speakers include:

• Dr Cathy Vaughan, University of Melbourne
• Asha Acuoth, Salvation Army
• Dr Jasmin Chen, Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health

Moderated by Pino Migliorino, ANROWS Board Director.

Attendees will learn about the key findings of the research, and engage in a discussion about how to work collaboratively with migrant and refugee communities to address violence against women.
