In 2013, Our Watch was established to drive nationwide change in the culture, behaviours and power imbalances that lead to violence against women and their children. This report presents the results of the summative evaluation and honours a commitment to evaluation made by Our Watch in its Five Year Strategic Plan. This report serves as an accountability measure for Our Watch and provides evidence-based recommendations to inform its future strategic decisions. Key evaluation themes: 1. Development of an Australian evidence base. Change the story has provided the evidence base in an Australian context for primary prevention and established a common language to discuss and plan how to address the gendered drivers of violence. 2. Awareness raising and contribution to public conversation. Our Watch’s diverse range of work – including public campaigns, Change the story, The Line, supporting respectful relationships education in schools and the Walkley Awards and direct media engagement – have helped to raise awareness of violence against women and their children and keep the issue in the spotlight. 3. National coordination of primary prevention effort. Our Watch has played a critical role bringing stakeholders, practitioners and government together to share learnings, connect and coordinate activities nationally. 4. Respectful relationships. Our Watch has worked with the education sector to support the roll-out of respectful relationships education in Victoria and Queensland. Its respectful relationships education whole school approach toolkit has enabled a consistent approach to delivering respectful relationships education within schools. 5. An independent and impartial voice in violence against women and their children. Our Watch provides a much-needed independent, evidence-based, considered and impartial voice to the public conversation on violence against women and their children. (From the document).
