Fife’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence
As part of the Fife Violence Against Women Partnership, KASP is proud to be supporting the international 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence Campaign.
In Scotland, at least four out of five incidents of domestic abuse recorded by police have a female victim and a male accused. Women and girls are disproportionately affected by domestic abuse, sexual violence and other forms of violence committed mainly by men.
This 16 Days campaign is a time for raising awareness about gender inequality, gender-based violence and thinking of actions we can all take to be part of ending violence against women in all its forms. That includes domestic abuse, rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, childhood sexual abuse and so called ‘honour based’ crimes, such as forced marriage and female genital mutilation.
For the campaign, which runs from 25 Nov to 10 Dec, there is a programme of events planned that will raise awareness about gender inequality and violence against women.
