Commission welcomes new resource for Australian journalists reporting on violence against women

The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission congratulates the Centre for Advancing Journalism on the launch of its new website, Uncovered.

Uncovered is a resource developed by and for Australian journalists interested in best practice reporting on violence against women.

The website will critique mainstream media reporting on violence against women – giving journalists a better understanding of what's right, what's wrong and what's missing in coverage.

Uncovered will provide resources, guidelines and contacts for journalists and conduct its own investigative journalism on violence against women.

The website forms part of a larger project, 'Violence Against Women: A Media Intervention', funded by the Australian Research Council.

The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, along with Domestic Violence Victoria and VicHealth, is a proud partner of Uncovered and 'Violence Against Women: A Media Intervention'.
