Guidelines for Preventing Violence Against Women through Sport

Guidelines to support the community sport sector to lead change in gender equality and the prevention of gender-based violence.

The Victorian Government's Guidelines for Preventing Violence Against Women—Taking Action Through Community Sport acknowledge the enormous capacity local sporting clubs have to influence positive behaviours and attitudes around gender equality, respectful relationships and the prevention of gender-based violence.

They include a range of practical tools, strategies, and advice to support state sporting associations, regional sports assemblies, local councils, women’s health services and community health organisations to develop projects that meet the unique needs of the communities they serve.

There are numerous case studies throughout the Guidelines that tell the story of how community sports can be equal, respectful and safe, and contribute to the prevention of violence against women.
