A Safe and Equal Bristol: A local approach to preventing VAWG

1 November 2012

Survey launch event, Bristol, Thursday 8 November

In the context of the Rochdale and Jimmy Savile scandals, and as part of their Schools Safe 4 Girls campaign, the EVAW Coalition have been conducting research into work being done in schools across Bristol and other local areas to prevent violence against women and girls (VAWG).

Come to our panel discussion on 8 November to hear why EVAW undertook the project and their interim findings, to hear about other work being done in this area, and to discover why it's a local issue for politicians, police & crime commissioners, public health and schools. 

Issues discussed include:

  • How do we stop sexual bullying and harassment in the playground?
  • How do we ensure that boys learn about healthy and respectful relationships towards women from school rather than porn?
  • How do we ensure child protection policies protect girls at risk of FGM?
