WAVES Report on the GVRN Conference

March 04, 2015 at 5:25 PM

With the support of Auckland Council I attended the inaugural Asia-Pacific conference on gendered violence and violations, held in Sydney in February. I have come back from the conference better informed about the differing (and sometimes conflicting) theoretical perspectives that shape the family violence sector, particularly with regards to the role that gender plays in perpetuating violence against women and children.
