“What about my right not to be abused?” Domestic abuse, human rights and the family courts

This report from Women's Aid and Queen Mary University of London looks at domestic abuse and child contact proceedings in the family courts through the lens of human rights. It is based on the testimonies of 72 women survivors living in England. It uncovers a glaring gender gap in the way human rights are used and understood in the family courts. It also highlights a clear lack of understanding of the dynamics of domestic abuse, and new evidence of gender discrimination within the institutional culture of the courts.

Seven women a month are killed by a current or former partner in England and Wales. Yet thousands of victims do not get the right support at the right time, with SafeLives research showing that 85% of victims seek help five times on average before they get effective help.
