Domestic, Family & Teen Dating Violence

May 2015: In 2014, Youth Action and the White Ribbon Foundation surveyed over 3,000 young people across Australia on their attitudes to Domestic, Family and Teen Dating Violence. This included questions on attitudes to gender equity and how common young people felt domestic violence was in Australia society.

This research forms the largest and most comprehensive survey of Australian young people’s attitudes in 15 years.

Two reports based on this research have been developed by Dr Jesse Cale and Associate Professor Jan Breckenridge from the Gendered Violence Research Network at UNSW. 

The first of these reports details our findings broken down by Gender and Age. The second focuses on differences in response by whether young people are at School, University or not in education.
