Professor Sharyn Rundle-Thiele
There is no denying violence is rife in Australian homes. Each week one Australian woman is murdered by her current or former partner and two million Australian adults have experienced at least one incidence of sexual assault from the age of 15 (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2017). Of these, 1.6 million were experienced by women (i.e., 1 in 6 women) and 385,000 were experienced by men (i.e., 1 in 25 men).
This Change 2021 event aims to discuss pathways to violence prevention and brings together a diverse panel of speakers. All these speakers are already making change happen. They keep our communities safer with their passion and commitment and their organisations play a key role in delivering pathways that can prevent violence.
