What is gender based violence?
Gender-based violence stems from rigid gender roles and is a direct consequence of gender inequality. However, violence can and does occur in non-binary and same sex relationships. Current statistics show that trans women, non-binary people, Indigenous women, cis women, women with disabilities and the LGBTQIA+ community are more likely to experience gender-based violence. Gender-based violence is called many different things, including domestic violence, family violence, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment and sexual assault.
A recent Australian survey shows that 41% of lesbians and 28% of gay men have experienced abuse within a romantic relationship
