Over 300 attendees joined local and international experts on violence against women to discuss the emerging opportunities and challenging facing the sector.

Since then, Our Watch has led the development of a reflections report on the conference, capturing some of the key themes that were discussed at the conference as well as feedback shared by delegates via twitter and evaluation surveys.

If you were unable to attend, this report provides an overview of some of the ideas, challenges, and opportunities that were raised at the conference.

For those of you who were able to join us in Adelaide, thank you for your contributions! We hope you enjoy reading the report
