Why most women do not report Domestic violence and Abuse in Perth WA.
Domestic violence and abuse is a significant issue that affects many women in Perth, Western Australia. Despite the existence of legal and support services, many women do not report incidents of domestic violence and abuse to the authorities. This research proposal aims to investigate why most women do not report domestic violence and abuse in Perth, Western Australia. The findings of this study will help to identify the barriers that prevent women from reporting incidents of domestic violence and abuse, and inform the development of effective strategies to address this issue.
Research questions and aims
The main aim of this research is to explore the reasons why most women do not report domestic violence and abuse in Perth, Western Australia. To achieve this aim, the following research questions will be addressed:
What are the main reasons why women do not report incidents of domestic violence and abuse in Perth, Western Australia?
What are the common barriers that prevent women from reporting domestic violence and abuse to the authorities?
What are the attitudes and beliefs of women towards the reporting of domestic violence and abuse?
What strategies could be developed to encourage more women to report incidents of domestic violence and abuse?
Literature review and/or background to the issue (900 words)
Domestic violence and abuse is a significant social problem that affects women across Australia. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), one in three women have experienced physical violence since the age of 15, and one in five women have experienced sexual violence. These statistics are alarming, and highlight the urgent need to address this issue.
Despite the existence of legal and support services, many women do not report incidents of domestic violence and abuse to the authorities. Research has shown that there are a range of factors that contribute to this under-reporting, including fear of retaliation, lack of trust in the authorities, and cultural and social barriers. Additionally, many women may not recognise that they are experiencing domestic violence and abuse, or may not understand the legal and support services that are available to them.
In Perth, Western Australia, there is limited research on the reasons why women do not report incidents of domestic violence and abuse. This research proposal aims to address this gap in the literature and provide a better understanding of the factors that prevent women from reporting domestic violence and abuse in this region.
This research proposal will utilise qualitative research methods to explore the reasons why most women do not report domestic violence and abuse in Perth, Western Australia. The research will involve one-to-one face-to-face interviews with a minimum of 20 women who have experienced domestic violence and abuse, and who have not reported these incidents to the authorities.
The interviews will be conducted by professional community workers, and will be 45 to 60 minutes in duration. The interviewees will be recruited from community agencies that provide services to women who have experienced domestic violence and abuse. The research team will employ an assistant researcher, a transcriber, and a counsellor to assist with the data collection and analysis process.
Ethical considerations are essential in this research proposal, as it involves working with vulnerable participants who have experienced domestic violence and abuse. The research team will ensure that all participants are fully informed about the nature of the research, and that their consent is obtained before any data is collected.
Participants will be provided with an outline of the research, including its aims, methods, and potential outcomes. The research team will ensure that the principles of beneficence and justice are upheld throughout the research process, and that the participants are treated with respect and dignity.
The research will commence in January 2024 and will be conducted over a 12-month period. The following timetable outlines the key activities and
