eSafety planning

Millions of women and girls experience violence daily because of their gender. 73 per cent of women report experiencing abuse online, with women 27 times more likely to be abused online than men. #

Most women who are abused offline by current and former partners, will also be subject to violence online. *

Online violence includes abusive text messages and phone calls, offensive online posts, stalking, threats, hate messages, and the encouragement of self harm.

eSafety planning will help all women use technology to manage online abuse and to prevent abusers locating them through social media and devices. 

If you are in immediate danger, call Triple Zero (000) now.
