Evidence to action and local action as evidence: Findings from the Building Safe Communities for Women and their Children Action Research Support Initiative

This report provides an overview of the key findings from both the individual Building Safe Communities for Women and their Children (BSCW)  projects funded by the Australian Government to reduce violence against women and their children and the synthesised findings of the ANROWS Action Research Support Initiative. Key findings included the importance of challenging  the harmful gender-normative attitudes and behaviour of boys and men, the importance of tailoring initiatives to the target population and the importance of implementing an evidence-informed theoretical and practice framework.
