- Half of Australian men think that women are made up claims to come back
- One in seven people think that women often make false accusations of sexual violence
- Some believe that a man would be entitled to force sex if the woman had initiated it
- These are the findings of a study conducted by a non-profit organization
Almost half of Australian men think that women come up with rape charges to get back to them and some men find it justified to force sex for a woman if she initiates intimacy and then changes her mind.
That is according to the 2017 National community attitudes towards violence against women's research (NCAS) report.
The research was conducted by the Australian National Organization for Research on Women's Safety (ANROWS), a non-profit research agency.
The report shows that about 45 percent of young men and 29 percent of young women believe that sexual accusations are used as a way to get back to men.
One in seven (14 percent) young people think that women often make false accusations of sexual assault.
& # 39; One in seven young Australians believes that a man would be entitled to force sex if the woman took the initiative, but then changed his mind and pushed him away, & the report said.
Almost half of Australian men think that women make up sexual assault to come back and some men find it justified to force sex for a woman when she initiates intimacy and then changes her mind.
Principal investigator Dr. Anastasia Powell said that many young people, especially men, blamed women for assault and did not fully understand the consent.
& # 39; It's very problematic for young men to think it's sometimes okay to force sex for a woman, or believe that women want men to keep pursuing them, even after they say they're not interested, & # 39 ; said Dr. Powell.
& # 39; We need to do more to teach young men what consent looks like.
& # 39; Sweeping right is not permission, kissing is not permission, and saying yes to one sexual act does not give general permission for everything.
The survey was conducted by the Australian National Organization for Research on Women's Safety (ANROWS), a non-profit research organization. & # 39; One in seven young Australians believes that a man would be entitled to force sex if the woman did it, but changed his mind and pushed him away & # 39; said the report.
The report found that about 30 percent of men surveyed think it is harmless for men who make sexist jokes about women if they are one of their male friends.
About 52 percent of men think that many women exaggerate how unequally they are treated in Australia.
& # 39; Almost one in three young people (31 percent) believe that women prefer a man in charge of a relationship, with young men (36 percent) supporting this statement more often than young women (26 percent), & # 39; report said.
& # 39; Almost half (49 percent) of young people think that many women mistakenly interpret innocent comments or are sexist. & # 39;
ANROWS chief executive officer Dr. Heather Nancarrow said that in recent ten years there have been improvements in understanding young people about violence against women.
& # 39; Our NCAS study shows that we still have a long way to go in educating young people about the difference between a healthy relationship and abuse, & # 39; said Dr. Nancarrow.
& # 39; The good news is that attitudes can change. We can train young people to better understand all forms of violence against women and that controlling behavior is not part of a healthy relationship. & # 39;
Main findings of the attitude of the national community towards violence against women's research (NCAS)
One in seven young Australians believes that a man would find it fair to force sex if the women took the initiative, but changed their mind and pushed him away.
Almost a quarter of young men think that women find it flattering to be pursued persistently, even if they are not interested.
14 percent of young men do not understand that intimidation by repeated emails or text messages is domestic violence.
Two in five young Australians (43 percent) support the statement & # 39; I think it's normal for a man to appear in control of his partner in front of his male friends & # 39;
More than one in five young men (22 percent) believe that men should take control of relationships and be the head of the household. In general, young people are more likely to support gender equality in public life (ie at work or in politics) than in their intimate relationships.
Problematic views about violence against women and gender equality are more common among young people with mostly male friends.
