Using talk and the body to prevent gender-based violence

A Marsden-funded research project led by Professor Ann Weatherall

About the project

Violence and sexual abuse against women and girls is a widespread problem in Aotearoa New Zealand. Empowerment self-defence courses have been found to be effective in preventing violence in the first place. In order to better understand how the courses work, we are video-recording and analysing them.
