Zero Tolerance and Scottish Refugee Council partner up to promote women’s voices on migration

Zero Tolerance, with the support of the Scottish Refugee Council is launching this years’ Write to End Violence Against Women Awards, with a new gender equality category: ‘Women and Migration’. This category is open to all those writing from personal experience of migration or for an article written on the topic of women and migration.

The Ferret conference shows how good investigative journalism can challenge gender inequality

At Zero Tolerance we are working hard to support the media in Scotland to improve their engagement with the issue of violence against women. This is why we founded the Write to End Violence Against Women Awards and why we continue to engage with media outlets whenever we can. We know that the media has a vital role when it comes to shaping public attitudes, with the potential to be a real force for change.

This year we are introducing our inaugural "Gender Equality Award". The purpose of this award is to recognise that working towards a gender equal society is vital to ending violence against women. Gender inequality means that women have less economic, political and social power than men, making it possible for some men to abuse their power.
