Violence Against Women

Violence against women continues to be an unaddressed and significant issue across the country and here in Tasmania, for all women.

For Aboriginal Women in Tasmania, the perpetrated violence is more severe and disproportionate.

Aboriginal women are 11 times more likely to lose their lives to assault than non-Aboriginal Women, and three in five Aboriginal women experience violence by a male intimate partner.
