The Write To End Violence Against Women in Conversation with Rosey Project Community
Join us for a conversation with experts from the Rosey Project Community. At this event they will share findings from their latest research on the impact of the coverage of sexual violence in the media on young survivors. We will also look at the findings from Zero Tolerance’s media monitoring project. The session will be followed by a Q&A session with to talk about what media workers can do to help end violence against women.
This session is aimed at media workers, journalism students and anyone who would like to learn more about violence against women.
The Rosey Project Community is a group of young survivors of sexual violence who have received support from Glasgow and Clyde Rape Crisis. This year they have undertaken peer research into the impact that the portrayal of sexual violence in the media has on other young survivors. The research has shown a wide range of areas that need to be improved, given the 72% of those surveyed said that media portrayals had a negative impact on their wellbeing.
Zero Tolerance is a Scottish charity working to end men’s violence against women by promoting gender equality and challenging attitudes that normalise violence and abuse. We provide support to media workers and produced Media Guidelines on reporting on violence against women - recommended by the Independent Press Standards Organisation. We also run The Write To End Violence Against Women Awards and Bursary in partnership with the Daily Record.
