Stopping Violence Against Women Before It Starts Toolkit
I agree that in order to prevent sexual violence and domestic violence we need to “…focus on the community as the driving force for changing societal attitudes.” This concept is made real in the new toolkit Stopping Violence Against Women Before It Starts: A Practical Toolkit for Communities that consists of 15 factsheets including practical ideas and resources for community action. While it is designed for rural communities, anyone interested in prevention will find it to be a useful resource.
This toolkit was developed in Australia by the National Rural Women’s Coalition (NRWC), Australian Women Against Violence Alliance (AWAVA) and Queensland’s Centre for Domestic and Family Violence Research (CDFVR).
