The End Violence Against Women Coalition is independent of government and uses a strong feminist voice to campaign for change. Our campaigns include:
What are the parties pledging to do to end violence against women and girls? What can you do to put this on your candidate's agenda?
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.
We supported members to lobby candidates in national and local elections to ensure that all women and girls who experience violence have specialist support. Also on this page are links to some excellent resources on women's specialist services.
EVAW was set up in 2005 to campaign for government to take a more strategic approach to ending violence against women. With our members we have successfully campaigned for VAWG strategies in Westminster, London, Wales and many local areas. We continue to lobby for the roll out of this work.
