Welcome to this fortnight's edition of the ANROWS Notepad.
First Horizons paper launched next week
Next week we will launch our first Horizons report, Violence against women: Additional analysis of the Australian Bureau of Statistics' 2012 Personal Safety Survey written by Dr Peta Cox, Senior Research Officer (Research Program). ANROWS Horizons are in-depth reports on empirical research produced under ANROWS’s Research Program.
ANROWS subscribers will receive notification of the release in their inbox. We look forward to sharing our first research report with our stakeholders and the broader community.
On Thursday 1 October Heather Nancarrow, CEO, attended the Ending Violence Against Women Queensland (EVAWQ) official launch in Brisbane. The newly-formed EVAWQ is the only peak body in Australia that provides a united and representative state-wide voice across all three areas of sexual violence, women’s health and domestic and family violence services.
ACT co-convened event
On Monday 12 October ANROWS held a co-convened event with the ACT Office for Women. ACT Minister for Women Yvette Berry launched the ANROWS Landscapes paper on integrated responses to domestic and family violence, research led by Associate Professor Jan Breckenridge. Representatives from the ACT women’s sector who attended the event took part in a workshop on barriers to integration in the ACT and how they could, or should, be overcome. Heather, Emeritus Professor Anne R. Edwards AO, Chair of the ANROWS Board, and Dr Ann Deslandes, Senior Research Officer (Knowledge Translation and Exchange) represented ANROWS at the event.
