The Department of Justice has issued two Calls for Views on issues to help inform the content, themes and overall direction of a new Domestic and Sexual Abuse strategy and a Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy.
On the Equally Safe Strategy, a Strategy to tackle Violence Against Women and Girls, this is intended to tackle violent and abusive behaviour directed at women and girls precisely because they are women and girls. This strategy will reach more widely to include other acts and threats of gender based violence that result in, or may result in physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, whether occurring in public or in private life, in the physical world or online.
Siobhán will be making a Consortium response to these consultations and would welcome your input into these calls for evidence. Please get in touch with Siobhán at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for responses to this consultation is Monday 7th March 2022 and it is available here
