Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS) have developed an infographic containing some of the most significant findings on violence against women from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Personal Safety Survey 2016. The findings show that women continue to be affected by violence in different contexts, including one quarter of women who experience violence by an intimate partner and half of all women who experience sexual harassment during their lifetimes. View the infographic. The ABS statistics also show that men are more likely to have experienced physical violence (41%) than women (31%). Overall, the proportion of people experiencing violence in the last 12 months has declined over the last decade, primarily due to a decline in incidents of physical violence, though for women, the rates of partner violence have not declined. One in six women (16%) and one in ten men (11%) experienced abuse before the age of 15, with 10% of men and 13% of women witnessing violence towards their mother by a partner before the age of 15.
