Resource library

The Library provides resources for practitioners in the prevention of violence against women field. It aims to support evidence-based, best practice approaches to prevention of violence against women work.

How to use the library

  • The categories on the left side of the Library allow you to view resources grouped by issue, type, author, topic, region or year. 
  • You can select multiple categories at once for a combined search (eg. Videos on intersectionality from 2015)
  • If you want to do a single category search, remember to unselect any previous categories you may have selected, or it will automatically do a multiple category search. 
  • You may also search directly through the search bar below.

Please note that resources included in this Library are prevention-focused. It is acknowledged that preventing violence against women work can require knowledge and data on prevalence and dynamics of violence against women, and responding to this violence. This data is not generally included in this library except where it holds particular pertinence to current prevention work. However, this information is available through other sources

You can support the information sharing function of the Library at any time through the Suggest a resource for the library page.
