Chay Brown has been researching violence against Indigenous women in Australia’s Northern Territory since 2013. Between 2013 and 2014, her research focussed on the impact of the Northern Territory Emergency Response on violence against women in Alice Springs' Town Camps. Chay also has eight years of experience working with children and families who experience/have experienced violence. Between 2014 and 2016, Chay worked for an anti-trafficking organisation in Bangkok, working alongside women in safe houses who had survived sex trafficking. From 2016 to 2020, Chay designed and led research exploring what works to prevent violence against women in the Northern Territory and led the development of a Northern Territory specific violence prevention framework.
