Celebrating International Women’s Day

March 8 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Learn more about our services and how the theme for International Women’s Day related to our work to keep people safe from violence and abuse. Find out what you can do and how to refer into our services.

Violence against women and girls is a global problem, underpinned by bias, discrimination and stereotypes, all contributing to women’s unequal status in society. 

Together we can #BreakTheBias. 

Despite the rights and protections afforded in the UK, women and girls still feel unsafe in their own homes, public spaces and in their schools and universities. In some areas of the UK, the right to marry who you choose and access to reproductive healthcare are still being fought for and debated. 

Globally, violence against women is as serious a cause of death and incapacity among women of reproductive age as cancer, and a greater cause of ill health than traffic accidents and malaria combined. 

Globally: 

  • 1 in 3 women and girls experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime, most frequently by an intimate partner.  
  • 200 million women and girls have undergone female genital mutilation (FGM).  
  • 1 in 2 women killed worldwide were killed by their partners or family in 2012; only 1 out of 20 men were killed under similar circumstances.

Nationally: 

  • 1.6 million women aged 16 to 74 years experienced domestic abuse, around 7% of the female population 
  • Between April 2020 and March 2021, there were 5,395 women and girls who had attendances at NHS trusts or GPs in England where FGM was identified. 
  • 3% of women aged 16 to 74 years experienced sexual assault (including attempts)

Locally, we support over 10,000 women a year who have been subjected to domestic abuse and sexual violence. Your donation could help us keep women safe. 

Collectively, we can realise a world where women and girls are free from fear, abuse and violence.
