Aiming to Reduce Violence Against Women
The Australia Government has recently released a Family Safety Pack in an effort to reduce violence against women, especially those from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds. It provides information on Australia’s laws regarding domestic and family violence, sexual assault and forced marriage. The pack also explains the rights of women coming into Australia on Partner Visa and where they can obtain support if needed. The pack, available in 22 languages, includes fact sheets on
- domestic and family violence
- sexual assault
- forced and early marriage
- family violence and partner visas
- a low literacy storyboard.
