On 25 November, a Federal Senate inquiry into Domestic Violence and Gender Inequality was announced.
The Senate Committee will consider the role of gender inequality in all spheres of life in contributing to the prevalence of domestic violence; the role of gender stereotypes in contributing to cultural conditions which support domestic violence; and the role of government initiatives at every level in addressing the underlying causes of domestic violence.
The Committee is inviting individuals and organisations to send in their opinions and proposals relating to this inquiry. The submission closing date is 31 March 2016. The Committee will hand down their report on 24 August 2016.
