In celebration of International Women’s Day 2019, Zero Tolerance, AMINA The Muslim Women’s Resource Centre, The Church of Scotland and Summerhall ask you to join us in our new campaign #AnyWomanAnywhere to increase awareness and understanding of violence against women.
Over the past decades there have been dramatic changes to public attitudes around some aspects of men’s violence against women. Yet domestic abuse, sexual violence and other forms of violence against women are still prevalent in Scotland today, especially for groups of women who face other forms of discrimination; women with learning disabilities, women who sell sex, lesbian, bisexual and trans (LBT) and black and minority ethnic women.
Zero Tolerance, Amina Muslim Women’s Resource Centre, the Church of Scotland and Summerhall are inviting you to join our team of volunteers. We work to end men’s violence against women and we can’t do it without you!
Are you passionate about women’s rights or perhaps you would like to learn more about it? Would you like to be part of an exciting national campaign to increase awareness and understanding of violence against women in Scotland?
