Primary prevention of sexual violence and harassment against women and girls: combining evidence and practice knowledge

Final report and theory of change
Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Violence against women Violence prevention Family violence Primary prevention Violence against children Australia

To build the evidence base, researchers drew on an expert advisory group, an evidence review, data analysis/synthesis and extensive sector consultation to guide development of this theory of change. The evidence shows few effective sexual violence and harassment (SVH) primary prevention interventions exist (Hooker et al., 2020). With a clear understanding of the global evidence, the research progressed to explore the primary prevention of SVH within the Australian context.

To gain a stronger understanding of key factors, researchers conducted consultations with specialist sexual violence services, women’s sector and key organisations/experts across Australia to gain further insight into SVH primary prevention activities, the experiences and the suggested SVH prevention priorities of service users and providers.
