Gender Based Violence and the COVID-19 Pandemic

This panel brings together Monash researchers from Monash Gender and Family Violence Prevention Centre and Monash Gender, Peace and Security, who have undertaken rapid research during the pandemic with local, national and international partners to capture the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on gendered violence.

They will share their research and findings across these projects, to explore the specific ways in which forms of violence have manifested, its impacts on women who have experienced violence during this time and the challenges faced by frontline workers in support and advocacy roles. The panel will be a conversation about findings and their implications as we look towards the rebuilding of lives, systems and the opportunities to do some things differently as we continue efforts to address and reduce gendered violence.
