AU: Social Services Minister tells National Press Club of government's pledge to end domestic violence within 'one generation'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Social Services Minister Amanda Rishworth says it's time to "stop shying away" from evidence that shows men are overwhelmingly the perpetrators of domestic, family, and sexual violence.

"The evidence shows there is a clear, gendered nature to family, domestic and sexual violence," she said.

"Ninety-five per cent of people who have experienced physical or sexual violence name a man as the perpetrator.
According to ABS data, one in three women have experienced physical or sexual violence, or both, at the hands of a man they know.

Research from 2017 also shows women accounted for three quarters of the people who experienced intimate partner violence since the age of 15, compared to men who accounted for one quarter.'
