International Violence Against Women Survey (IVAWS)

The International Violence Against Women Survey (IVAWS) was conducted across Australia between December 2002 and June 2003. A total of 6,677 women aged between 18 and 69 years participated in the survey, and provided information on their experiences of physical and sexual violence. The report, Women's experiences of male violence : findings from the Australian component of the International Violence Against Women Survey (IVAWS) (Jenny Mouzos and Toni Makkai, 2004), describes the type of violence (including threats of violence) by current and former intimate male partners, other known males, such as relatives, friends and acquaintances, and strangers. It also examines women's reported experiences of childhood violence, as well as their perceptions and reactions to the violence they experienced.
