.NATSILS welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to this inquiry and put forth our experience and knowledge in relation to the role of gender inequality and stereotypes as a contributing factor for family violence and how governments can support and contribute to the social, cultural and behavioural shifts required to eliminate violence against women and their children. We would like to note that NATSILS has previously submitted to the
