Full course description
Even with crime rates in Australia at a historic low, statistics show that women face violence at rate that's dramatically higher than men, usually at the hands of their spouses or partners. This kind of violence doesn't just happen: research shows that it's fuelled and supported by unhealthy attitudes towards women attitudes that spring directly from an environment of inequality between the genders.
Raising awareness around gender equality, and taking steps to reduce it, has a direct effect on decreasing this kind of gender-based violence which means every single one of us has a role to play in preventing violence against women.
This course gives you the fundamentals on why gender-based violence happens, and lays out practical strategies to challenge the attitudes that promote gender inequality, both in our workplaces and in our personal lives, and gives you the tools you need to help make violence against women a thing of the past.
