EVAW prevention network
The End Violence Against Women Coalition (EVAW) runs a fantastic prevention network that brings together experts in the prevention of Violence Against Women and Girls to campaign and lobby for a coordinated, targeted and long term approach to preventing VAWG (violence against women and girls). In particular, they are calling for schools and other educational institutions to play their part in creating a safer world for women and girls.
You can find out more and join the EVAW Coalition. Also read their excellent report on ‘A different world is possible: Ending Violence Against Women.‘ This report sets out why we need a targeted and long term approach to preventing VAWG drawing on the most cutting-edge evidence-base on the causal factors underlying violence and abuse. We make policy recommendations under ten areas of action for Westminster government departments, statutory bodies, schools and other educational institutions and local authorities, providing a preliminary blueprint for decision-makers and an advocacy tool for the third sector. The report has been developed with expert practitioners, researchers and policy analysts on the EVAW Prevention Network, England. The report is complemented with ‘A Different World is Possible: Promising practices to prevent violence against women and girls’, a piece of research that explores examples of interventions to prevent violence through education, community mobilisation and capacity building, media and public awareness.
