The End Violence Against Women Coalition is independent of government and uses a strong feminist voice to campaign for change. Current campaigns include:
One in three girls say they experience 'groping' or unwanted sexual touching at school in the UK. Our new campaign asks parents and students to talk to local schools about these issues and the Government to act, for example by making it compulsory for schools to address violence against women and girls through compulsory Sex and Relationships Education.
We have also given evidence at the Leveson Inquiry into press ethics and practices and published a short report investigating media sexism with three other women's organisations.
This includes our campaign in the May 2012 London Mayoral election, our poll on sexual harassment in public places, and preventing abuse at the London Olympics.
This includes our work supporting members to lobby candidates in the November 2012 Police & Crime Commissioner elections and links to some excellent resources on the powers of the PCCs.
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.
