Violence Unseen

Zero Tolerance has created a new photography exhibition, Violence Unseen, to explore the types of violence against women that remain unseen and unacknowledged by mainstream society

Zero Tolerance commissioned an award-winning photographer Alicia Bruce to produce images for the new Violence Unseen exhibition. The photographer has worked with groups and individuals affected by men’s violence to create a series of photographs that explore the types of violence against women that remain unseen and unacknowledged by mainstream society. The photographs shine a light on the types of violence against women that still remain unacceptably hidden and better represent the constellation of women’s lived experiences.

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 in prostitution, lesbian, bisexual and trans (LBT) and black and minority ethnic women.

The exhibition is available free of charge, however we would really appreciate contribution towards transport costs and insurance.
