2023 Research Discussion Paper - Misidentification of the Predominant Aggressor in Tasmania

This paper explores how misidentification of the predominant aggressor – also known as ‘misidentification of the primary aggressor’ – occurs when victim-survivors are inaccurately determined to be the predominant aggressor in the investigation into family violence offending. The impacts of this on victims-survivors are described and analysed through the presentation of lived experience case studies.

2022 Submission to the Tasmanian Women's Strategy 2022-2027

In many ways the draft Strategy achieves its objectives in reflecting critical life domains in which women’s experiences are far from equal – in relation to safety and economic security, for example. In our assessment, however, it falls short of translating these objectives into realisable outcomes for the women we know and work alongside across Tasmanian communities.

2021 Submission to the Commission of Inquiry into the Tasmanian Government’s Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in Institutional Settings

Engender Equality calls for an adequate understanding of the role that organisational culture plays in enabling child sexual abuse in institutional settings and proposes that hierarchical allocation of power within bureaucratic systems reduces the opportunities for individual accountability, with the result of diminished transparency. Our submission has been researched and written by Dr Morag MacSween and is informed by over three decades of experience as a service provider, advocacy organisation and strategic partner in the Tasmanian family and sexual violence sectors.
