The End Violence Against Women Coalition is independent of government and uses a strong feminist voice to campaign for change. Our campaigns include:
EVAW has written to Labour Party Leader and Deputy Leader candidates asking them about their commitments to ending violence against women and girls. Read their replies here.
In July 2015, EVAW wrote to those standing to be their party's candidate for London Mayor in May 2016 to ask them what they would do to end violence against women and girls in the capital. Read their replies here.
What did the parties pledge to do to end violence against women and girls? Read our asks and their replies in the run up to May 2015.
The EVAW Coalition has teamed up with the Everyday Sexism Project to call on all political party leaders to commit to compulsory sex and relationships education in all schools in their manifestos for the General Election in May 2015. Read more about this campaign here. Sign the petition here.
One in three girls say they experience 'groping' or unwanted sexual touching at school in the UK. Teachers are on the frontline working with girls who are experiencing or who are at risk of abuse in many forms. Our campaign is asking for compulsory sex and relationships education in all schools to help prevent abuse, and for teacher training and better school policies to address the issues.

We work to challenge harmful sexist and misogynistic media in many forms, including giving evidence on media sexism and harmful reporting at the Leveson Inquiry, supporting member organisation Rape Crisis South London's successful campaign to ban 'rape' pornography, and through our joint Rewind+Reframe project calling out racism and sexism in music videos.
