UNITE! Invest to prevent violence against women and girls
#NoExcuse: act now to end violence against women and girls
What will you do to end violence against women?
One in three women worldwide experiences physical or sexual violence.
In the UK, 70,600 rapes were registered in the year to June 2022. Scotland’s experienced an increase of 96% in the number of sexual crimes reported over the past decade. Whilst 108 women were killed by men in 2022
The cost of living crisis is only adding to the financial barriers women face when trying to leave dangerous situations.
The goal: for every public space to be safe, open and inclusive for all. So women no longer have to walk home with their keys between their fingers.
Imagine a world where:
…you feel safe, no matter what space you’re in
…you can go anywhere you choose, without fear of harassment
…you can go out at any time you choose, without worrying about what might happen
