The End Violence Against Women Coalition is independent of government and uses a strong feminist voice to campaign for change. Our campaigns include:
One in three girls say they experience 'groping' or unwanted sexual touching at school in the UK. Our 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 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.
