Equally Safe is Scotland’s Strategy which aims to prevent and eradicate violence against women and girls (alternatively known as gender-based violence).
The report outlines actions taken so far, including; the expansion of the delivery of the Rape Crisis Sexual Violence Prevention programme in schools which is designed to increase the understand of consent and healthy relationships; ongoing work with universities and colleges to ensure the provision of a safe environment for students and staff; publishing revised guidelines for the media on reporting domestic abuse-related issues and cases.
It also presents an overview of forthcoming actions and activities including the launch of a campaign in partnership with Rape Crisis Scotland on sexual harassment and sexism in early 2019 to raise awareness and encourage behaviour change.
