Harmony Alliance and Monash Migration and Inclusion Centre are conducting a nationwide survey into the experiences of migrant and refugee women in Australia. The survey will collect data on experiences of women from mi-grant and refugee backgrounds, with a focus on women’s safety and well-being. The survey is offered in nine languages. Migrant or refugee woman living in Australia over the age of 18 years are encouraged to take the survey. You can read more about this project and access the survey here.
Early this year WESNET, along with Dr Delanie Woodlock and researchers from Curtin University, conducted the Second National Survey on Technology Abuse and Domestic Violence.
On November 24, Karen Bentley, CEO of WESNET, and Professor Donna Chung of Curtin University will discuss the survey findings. They will share the knowledge and insights gained from the 442 domestic and family violence practitioners surveyed, such as how perpetrators of domestic violence are misusing technology as a tactic for abuse, threats, monitoring and surveillance. They will also explore what has changed over the last five years and share insights into the way technology is being misused during COVID-19.

People with limited physical and economic access to the quantity and quality of food they need to live an active and healthy life are food insecure. In Australia, women are more vulnerable to food insecurity than men, and women affected by domestic and family violence (DFV) are particularly vulnerable. These women may face controlled finances, the restriction of money for food, and financial hardship after leaving an abusive partner. This article, from the Australian Institute of Family Studies, outlines evidence on experiences of food insecurity for women and children affected by DFV and what works to support them.
