What is Zero Tolerance?

Zero Tolerance is a charity working to tackle the causes of men’s violence against women. Too many women in Scotland, and around the world, experience violence from men – most often men they are close to and/or who are in a position of power over them. We believe that men’s violence against women is caused by gender inequality, and that it helps this inequality to continue.

It doesn’t have to be this way. We work with individuals, communities, women’s organisations, schools, the media and others to address the causes of violence against women, and bring about change.

Change is Possible. Make it Happen.
