Facts about gender based violence in Oceania and Antarctica

A recent United Nations Multi-Country Study on Men and Violence in Asia and the Pacific found that nearly half of the more than 8,000 men interviewed reported using physical and/or sexual violence against a female partner, with the proportion of men reporting such violence ranging from 26% to 80% across sites. In all six countries included in the study, the majority (between 65% and 85%) of men who reported using physical or sexual violence against a partner had committed such acts of violence more than once.
