The Gendered Violence Research Network (GVRN) is a joint initiative of UNSW Arts and Social Sciences and UNSW Law. Members aim to explore gendered violence – also known as gender-related or gender-based violence – as an expression of power and control over individuals or groups because of their gender.
GVRN’s research interests span traumatic experiences including sexual assault, rape, domestic and family violence and related harms, trafficking for domestic and sexual exploitation, and girl child infanticide. These abuses can occur in private contexts such as the immediate family and extended family networks, as well as in community settings and intrastate or interstate conflict.
