Celebrating winners in the 2021 the Write To End Violence Against Women Public Recognition Awards

The 2021 WEVAW Public Recognition Awards represent the writing that challenge myths and misconceptions about violence against women and bring new perspectives on issues relating to gender inequality in Scotland.

Looking through the nominations this year we were taken aback by the quality and variety of submissions. The public nominated pieces featured in local and national newspapers, as well as blogs published on websites of charity organisations and grassroots groups.

Shortlisted articles included articles published by: STV News, BBC News, Bella Caledonia, Scottish Women’s Aid, That Guy Campaign, Press and Journal, Frontline Feminists Scotland, Vice, The National, The Ferret, The Scotsman, The Conversation, Herald Scotland, Labourist, The Courier and The Sunday Post.

The Write to End Violence Against Women Awards are held during the 16 Day of Action on Violence Against Women and have been an annual event since 2013.
