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.
International Women's Day 2020 (Sunday 8 March) is a busy time for us here at Zero Tolerance!
We have lots of exciting events coming up that we are organising, co-organising, and attending. So here's your quick fire round up of everything we'll be getting up to at the start of next month - we hope to see you there!
For International Women’s Day 2020, Amina: The Muslim Women’s Resource Centre and Zero Tolerance are creating, Chalk, an interactive play about violence against women.
The play will be five, one-act monologues depicting women survivors of gender-based violence.
We are auditioning for our five lead women. We hope to audition women representing a range of ethnicities and would welcome actors from BME backgrounds and white backgrounds, who can represent the range of women’s stories that our script shares.
On Wednesday night, we announced the winner of the 2019 Write to End Violence Against Women Awards, at a ceremony at the Scottish parliament sponsored by Jackie Baillie, MSP.
