In the last decades of the 20th Century and early decades of the 21st Century, globally and in national domains, responses to family violence have been prioritised and improved. This panel of Australian and international experts examines the changing nature of responses to family violence and women’s security. They identify social, political and legal transitions from the tolerance of violence against women to current social responses designed to ameliorate such violence. The panellists argue that the final pressing transition is toward primary prevention.
