The Coalition Government welcomes today’s release of the second national Personal Safety Survey by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Women, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash said the data from the Personal Safety Survey demonstrates the need for the Federal Government to maintain its focus on addressing violence against women. “This extensive survey builds on data collected in the first national Personal Safety Survey, and will assist in developing a strong evidence-base on violence against women,” Minister Cash said. “Shockingly, the survey confirms that one in three women aged 15 years and over have experienced physical violence, and almost one in five women have experienced sexual violence.”
