This resource has been produced by the Multicultural Centre for Women's Health.

This resource is intended as a starting point for professionals wanting to challenge some of the harmful ways people use cultural background or identity to explain or excuse particular experiences of violence.

The resource is written to be a practical and accessible tool for thinking and speaking differently about the relationship between culture and preventing violence against women and people of all genders.

Access the resource via the Centre's website.
