Abstract/Summary As long as women are not seen as equal to men and considered less worthy of respect, violence against women will continue in Australia. This means that as a nation, we need to promote equality and respect to all, and we need to do this right across the life course. Parents of young children have a unique opportunity to contribute to this whole-of-society approach. They can model equality and respect in their relationships, challenge rigid and harmful gender stereotypes and promote diverse interests, opportunities and experiences for their children. In early 2017, Our Watch commissioned a survey and desktop research to understand attitudes towards gender equality and gender stereotypes amongst parents of 0-3 year old children. Research company Ipsos Australia conducted the online survey in January 2017. This summary is an initial snapshot of this research, and focuses on the power of parents to challenge stereotypes. Our Watch will release a report on the broader research findings in early 2018.
