We are alarmed at the Govt’s decision to fragment its approach to gender-based violence (GBV), by creating 2 separate strategies for Violence Against Women & Girls (VAWG) and Domestic Abuse (DA).
Important concerns abt govt's plans for separate VAWG & DA strategies raised by @SBSisters @AngelouCentre @Safety4Sisters & @lawrsuk. Separate VAWG & DA strategies risks reversing 10 yrs of a joined-up approach to tackling the multiple forms of violence that affect women everyday
1/4 Today I was attacked in Parliament by #LizTruss. Tho she can read a script, she misrepresents the point of my Guardian interview. Specifically, I argue that this Gov is intentionally driving a wedge between White working class & BAME working class. It's classic #DivideAndRule
Thrilled to share the news that Andrea Simon is EVAW's new director. She brings unique vision, expertise, knowledge - building on the amazing foundations laid by outgoing director Sarah Green and those that came before her too. Onwards,sisters!✊
We're asking Peers in @UKHouseofLords to resist the dangerous and unfettered powers contained in the Covert Human Intelligence Bill.
Read our joint statement, with @centreWJ and others, here:

You can have a genuine concern about something you’ve been told about me and address it in a manner that is kind. That wasn’t what took place. Myself and the other people who would be talking during the segment could hear me being talked about like a dickhead.
I was also booked for @BBCWomansHour this AM and heard the appalling treatment @kelechnekoff was subjected to minutes b4 broadcast; it was really unfair and then led to a #MeToo discussion with no black woman's voice. Woman's Hour shd apologise to her and really must do better.
@arminkahelic outlines 3 vital measures to provide support to migrant survivors as part of the #DABill
1️⃣ extending the existing safety net
2️⃣ guaranteeing safe reporting mechanisms
3️⃣ equal & effective support to all survivors
Fantastic work frm @SBSisters @lawrsuk @EVAWuk 👏🏻
