eSafety for women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds: Summary report

15 March 2019

This report explores the nature and impact of technology-facilitated abuse among CALD women.

This report is published by the Australian eSafety Commissioner.

This report presents findings from a study of how women from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds experience technology-facilitated abuse and how services can best respond. Interviews were conducted with 29 women and 20 service providers and professionals.

The study found that, though CALD and non-CALD women have similar experiences of this form of abuse, CALD women face multiple barriers in seeking support, including social isolation, shaming and low digital literacy.

Access the report via the Commissioner's website.
