The family courts have been ignoring their legal responsibility to take domestic violence, including coercive control and rape, seriously.

It's time the family courts face the facts about domestic violence.

We are alarmed at the Govt’s decision to fragment its approach to gender-based violence (GBV), by creating 2 separate strategies for Violence Against Women & Girls (VAWG) and Domestic Abuse (DA).

Important concerns abt govt's plans for separate VAWG & DA strategies raised by @SBSisters @AngelouCentre @Safety4Sisters & @lawrsuk. Separate VAWG & DA strategies risks reversing 10 yrs of a joined-up approach to tackling the multiple forms of violence that affect women everyday

Serious concerns raised by @SBSisters @AngelouCentre @Safety4Sisters & @lawrsuk about the govt's decision to deliver separate VAWG & DA strategies. This could undermine women's rights & reverse 10 years of consensus on tackling violence against women and girls in a joined-up way
