Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls 2021 – 2024 Government Call for Evidence
27th January 2021
The government has launched a nationwide Call for Evidence to inform their new strategy for Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls. The Call for Evidence started on the 10th December 2020 and will close 19th February 2021.
Crimes which disproportionately affect women and girls, such as sexual violence, stalking and FGM have devastating consequences.
Over the last ten years, newer forms of violence against women and girls such as cyber flashing, revenge porn, and socalled ‘upskirting’ have also emerged. This Call for Evidence will help them respond to these social and technological changes and inform their new Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy, which will be published in Spring 2021.
Anyone can respond including people who have been directly affected by these awful crimes, or have friends, family and colleagues who have been, or they may work for organisations that provide
support to victims and survivors such as frontline professionals and policy experts working in social care, education, law enforcement, local government, public health and healthcare.
