This “Practical Guide for Violence Against Women Sector Workers” focuses on increasing the capacity of practitioners to work with news media and to provide prevention-focused messaging, along with key statistics and context.

The guide is divided into eleven sections and includes five quick reference supplements. Each section focuses on one area of working effectively with media on creating a prevention context for reporting violence against women. The quick reference supplements provide key ‘themes’, messaging content and evidence to be used when engaging media.

This guide is a must for any organization that wishes to build it's communication capacity and is called upon to provide information regarding violence against women. It includes useful information for working with various forms of media. Some of the reference material is based on Australian statistics and demographics but can easily be adjusted for other parts of the world.

 

The guide may be downloaded and used as a guide, a training tool and a quick reference when creating both reactive and proactive talking points.
