Online safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women living in urban areas

Online safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women living in urban areas

4 November 2019

This report explores technology-facilitated abuse against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women living in urban areas.

This report has been published by the Australian Government eSafety Commissioner.

The report presents findings from a study of service providers working with urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients. The study investigated the types and nature of online safety issues reported, sources of support, the barriers to accessing support and how online safety could be improved. The study found that Indigenous women experienced similar impacts to non-Indigenous women, but some impacts appeared to be amplified due to cultural or community factors.

Access the report via the eSafety Commissioner's website.
