Technology-Facilitated Abuse among Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Woman: A Qualitative Study

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned ReportOther

Abstract

The Office of the eSafety Commissioner (OeSC) commissioned the Social Research Centre in conjunction with leading academic experts from RMIT and Monash Universities to undertake research to explore and understand CALD women’s experiences of TFA. This report provides the findings of this research, which was conducted with CALD women who have experienced TFA, and stakeholders who support CALD women who are victims of TFA. The overall aim of this research was to better understand the experiences of TFA among CALD women living in Australia. The specific objectives of the qualitative research were:

• to hear the stories of CALD women who had experienced TFA; o to gain insight into specific situations and issues CALD women face in relation to TFA o to understand the impact of TFA on CALD women.
• to understand preferred pathways to seek assistance/take action and trusted sources of help/support o to understand the cultural sensitivities that need to be considered in relation to the type of support and information provided.

The research findings will inform the OeSC’s development of support resources for CALD women experiencing TFA, as well as more broadly provide further information for legal and policy reforms. This initiative forms part of a suite of measures in the Third Action Plan of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022.
