The National Community Attitudes towards Violence against Women Survey (NCAS) is a periodic, representative survey of the Australian population. It provides insights into the Australian community’s understanding and attitudes regarding violence against women, their attitudes towards gender inequality, and their intentions to intervene prosocially if witnessing violence or disrespect against women. This report looks specifically at understandings and attitudes held by young people aged 16 to 24 years.

Attendee's will hear about:

  • understanding and attitudes regarding violence against women, attitudes towards gender equality, and intention to intervene prosocially when witnessing abuse or disrespect of women among young people as at 2021
  • whether understanding and attitudes have improved among young people since the 2017 NCAS
  • gaps in understanding or problematic attitudes held by young people in 2021
  • demographic and other factors associated with problematic understanding and attitudes among young people
  • comparisons between the attitudes and understanding of young people and other respondents.

With an introduction from Sam Mostyn AO, ANROWS Board Chair, and an address by the Hon. Justine Elliot, Assistant Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, the launch will feature an overview of key findings by the Director of the NCAS, Dr Christine Coumarelos, and reflections from youth advocate, Mack Kohn (YFS).

Presenters:

  • Sam Mostyn AO is a non-executive director and sustainability adviser, with a long history of governance roles across business, sport, the arts, policy, diversity, Indigenous and women’s affairs, and the not-for-profit sectors.
  • Hon. Justine Elliot, Assistant Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, is the Federal Labor Member for Richmond and serves as the Assistant Minister for Social Services and the Assistant Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence in the Albanese Labor Government.
  • Dr Christine Coumarelos has more than 25 years’ experience directing research programs in the areas of crime and justice, as well as broader research experience in psychology and health.
