More than ready: Bystander action to prevent violence against women

Date: 25.05.12

Category: Publications: Preventing violence against women

The VicHealth Bystander Research Project is the first of its kind in Australia. To date, the project has included an evidence review to identify research gaps in the field, followed by a state-wide survey to examine readiness for bystander action in the Victorian community.

The findings provide a sound evidence base to develop further programs that encourage pro-social bystander action to address the determinants of violence against women. The findings also point to future directions in research related to bystanders and health promotion.
