End Violence Against women report: Violence against women and girls snapshot report 2021-22

The End Violence Against Women Coalition (EVAW) released its latest snapshot report for 2021-22 (pdf), setting out the state of violence against women and girls (VAWG) in the UK.

This summary report, published annually by EVAW, is an essential resource that compiles relevant key statistics and policy developments relating to violence against women and girls and its prevalence, and makes recommendations on what is required to eradicate it.

VAWG requires a different approach. It requires significant investment in prevention, addressing harmful attitudes and addressing perpetrator behaviour. It needs major financial support for the specialist VAWG sector, including organisations led ‘by and for’ Black and minoritised women. It needs measures that go beyond the traditional ideas of ‘public space’ to tackle VAWG that takes place online. And it requires fundamental transformation of the criminal justice system if it is have any hope of delivering justice for all victims and survivors who come forward to report.
