Australian-first research on women who abuse their partners and children has found women’s violence is underpinned by different motivations and dynamics to those of violent men.

Led by researchers at the University of Melbourne and Curtin University in collaboration with not-for-profit organisations Baptcare and Berry Street, it is the first Australian research to examine women who use force, with the findings to be used to better tailor intervention programs.
