Abstract

In February 2009, the Commonwealth Government commissioned VicHealth to conduct a national survey on Australian attitudes to violence against women. In addition to setting a benchmark against which changes in beliefs and values can be measured, the survey provides valuable information about the factors which shape attitudes to violence against women. This thematic review compares the survey findings with the latest literature in this area.
