“It will require a little effort, we need a sustained focus if we are going to have any chance at turning this, what is unacceptable levels of violence around. What we have drafted in this plan is there is no point putting investments in things that don’t work, so it is about investment but it’s also about a change in attitudes.”

Julian Gillard Statistical Approach

“One woman dies at the hand of her former or current partner every ten days in Australia. If three women are put together, one among them has experienced physical violence. If five women are gathered together, one among them has suffered sexual violence“.

She Continues;

There is a need for a change in conversation surrounding family and domestic violence. People do say oftentimes why didn’t she leave? How often do you hear that? The most important question to ask at this point is why does he choose to use violence against her?”

Promoting gender equality is of no need, and promoting respectful relationships is of no need. Nevertheless, all of these play an important role in addressing violence against children and women.

The new national plan will also put more focus on how gender equality drives violence against women. Area of importance includes early intervention, prevention and response not excluding recovery and healing.
