Media: Women’s Only Police Stations

QUT Media have issued a press release following a Channel 7 News report on Friday 3 May 2019 about QUT School of Justice Head of School Professor Kerry Carrington’s research into women’s only police stations in Argentina and their applicability to Australia.

Kerry has recently returned from the UN 63rd Commission on the Status of Women NGO Sessions in New York where she addressed the meeting of 80-100 NGO delegates from around the world on her extensive research on women’s police stations in Argentina and others’ research from Brazil and other South American countries.

Professor Carrington called on other UN members to recognise the women’s police stations’ success in preventing gender violence, and promote the establishment of stand-alone women’s police stations to eliminate violence against women.
