Brief Description


Change the Story: A shared framework for the primary prevention of violence against women and their children in Australia uses an evidence based framework to lay out a pathway to a measurable reduction in its prevalence. Similar approaches have been used to great effect in areas such as road safety, drink driving and rates of smoking.  Change the story presents the evidence and a conceptual approach for preventing violence against women and their children in Australia. It is a framework for a shared understanding and collaborative action, with six interrelated elements, all of which need to be in place to achieve this objective.
