News and events
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.
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.
Every year we work with activists, community groups and a range of organizations across Scotland to raise awareness on prevention of violence against women during the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence.
16 Days of Activism is an international campaign It is an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls. The campaign runs every year from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day.
We've been very busy this year so read our round up of all the events and campaigning we've been doing across Scotland!
