These guidelines have been developed with funding from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. They provide practical tips for reporters, editors and news directors on how best to present information in stories where violence is gendered.

The guidelines also aim to provide journalists with a deeper understanding of the complexities of violence perpetrated against women who identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander; and against women from other groups who experience more than one form of discrimination.

They include guidance on reporting on acts of violence against older women, migrant and refugee women, women living with a disability and women who identify as LGBTIQ+.
