This document is proposed as the alternative bill to the government’s forthcoming Domestic Abuse Bill 2018 and presents a summary of the key proposals. This bill is based on a deep understanding of the lived experiences of all those subjected to violence against women and girls (VAWG). It calls for a transformative response that is embedded in an equalities and human rights-based approach, and which is consistent with international and regional conventions and the laws of this country that reinforce the Public Sector Duty against discrimination of any kind.
