Violence against women is now recognised to be a serious and widespread problem in Australia. According to the Australian Institute of Criminology, on average, 1 in 3 Australian women have experienced physical violence since the age of 15.2; 1 in 4 women has experienced emotional abuse and 1 in 5 women has exprienced sexual violence by a current or former partner. 

It is important to note that violence against women is not only or always physical. It includes psychological, economic, emotional and sexual violence and abuse, and a wide range of controlling, coercive and intimidating behaviours. Children are also affected by violence against women when they are exposed to violence against their mothers or other caregivers which causes profound harm to them, with potential impacts on attitudes to relationships and violence, as well as behavioural, cognitive and emotional functioning, social development, and – through a process of ‘negative chain effects’ – education and later employment prospects.

Are you or one of your family / friends victims of domestic violence? 

Domestic violence takes a profound and long-term toll on women and their children’s health and wellbeing. This is a significant social problem results in women twice as likely as men to experience fear or anxiety due to violence from a former partner. At Coast Port Beach, we are strongly against domestic violence hence decided to partner up with Variety (the children’s charity) and support the Variety Toy Bank’s White Party event to help raise awareness of domestic violence against women and children. More importantly, the event is created to help bring happiness back to the lives of the disadvantaged mothers and children.
