Frequently Asked Questions

Why does White Ribbon Australia focus on violence perpetrated by men?

add_circle_outline remove_circle_outline
In Australia, there is a misconception that domestic violence is committed by men and women equally, with 41% of respondents in the National Community Attitudes Survey answering as such3. In reality, most perpetrators of domestic violence are men. The use of violence by men is often more severe, with 80% of intimate partner homicides being committed by males4.

What about violence against men?

While both women and men experience family and domestic violence, it is a gendered issue that happens more often to women than to men. In the latest Personal Safety Survey, 1 in 4 women has experienced intimate partner violence, while 1 in 14 men had experienced intimate partner violence1.
