Sexual and gender-based abuse and discrimination in academia in Australia: Survey

The Australian Women’s History Network would like to invite people to respond to a survey about sexual and gender-based abuse and discrimination in Academia. Given the wave of public speech happening surrounding this #MeToo moment internationally, the AWHN believes that it is vital that this be taken up within Australian academia. We are asking a broad range of people to fill out this survey – essentially, if you feel that your experience fits within the broad purview of the Australian Women’s History Network then we would like to hear from you. This survey is open to people in all forms, types and levels of academic, GLAM, or public history employment. We particularly want to be attentive to the experiences of marginalised peoples. Members of the working group for this survey come from a wide variety of backgrounds.

This survey is anonymous, and we would like you to provide as much or as little information as you are comfortable with. All questions are optional. It should only take 5-10 minutes.

You can find the survey below, or on google forms here.

Thank you for participating – we look forward to reading what you all have to share. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at

The survey will be open until April 6, 2018.
