16 Days - VAWG around the world | Safer Cornwall

What does violence against women and girls mean to you? We ask this to women from different nationalities and cultures around the world.

Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is not a country-specific issue – it crosses all borders and can affect women and girls of any age, nationality or background. Different cultural experience may, however, inform a woman’s confidence in reporting domestic abuse and sexual violence, and access to services and support.

On the final day of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence 2021, Safer Cornwall asks women from different nationalities and cultures to help us all understand a range of experiences and collaborate to ensure VAWG becomes a universally unacceptable act.

Susie Brown, Community Engagement Manager at the Women’s Centre Cornwall will provide an introduction to a series of filmed responses and invite discussion following viewing.
