Consultation

EVAW: Draft response to Government RSE consultation

The Government consultation on Relationship and Sex Education is open until 7th November 2018. The End Violence Against Women Coalition has published a detailed draft response to the consultation, which they believe is ‘woefully inadequate – it is not what was promised – it gives a green light to schools to pick and choose what they will cover – and it is not solid enough on the different forms of violence against women and girls and their connection to women’s inequality.’

Call for evidence: interventions with young people who have experienced sexual violence

The International Centre at the University of Bedfordshire is calling for evidence of peer interventions with young people who have experienced sexual violence for its Our voices research project. Peer interventions may include a variety of models, such as: one-to-one or group-based peer support, peer-led self-help groups, peer mentoring or online support. The deadline to submit research evidence is 31 October 2018.

New measures announced to combat forced marriage

The Home Secretary Sajid Javid has announced a package of measures to tackle forced marriage. As part of this, a public consultation will be launched to determine whether there should be a mandatory requirement for professionals to report a forced marriage case to the authorities. This will help identify:

  • which professionals the duty would apply to
  • the specific circumstances where a case would have to be reported
  • potential sanctions for failure to comply with the duty

WRC consultation on proposed reforms to the Gender Recognition Act 2004

The UK Government is currently consulting on proposed reforms to The Gender Recognition Act (GRA) 2004.

Women's Resource Centre (WRC) is therefore seeking the views of its members in order to respond to the Government’s consultation on reforming the process of changing an individual’s legal gender, via the GRA 2004.

We are particularly interested to gather your views on any impact the GRA may have on single and separate sex services for women and girls.
