Violence against women and domestic abuse
Violence against women and domestic abuse affects people from all walks of life, and from all cultural, social and ethnic backgrounds, the well off as well as the poor. It affects those in work and those out of work, the young and the old, in all parts of Wales.
We have published "The Right to be Safe" a 6 year integrated strategy for tackling all forms of violence against women. Violence against women constitutes a serious violation of the human rights of women and girls and is a major obstacle to the achievement of equality between women and men.
We want Wales to be a self confident, prosperous healthy nation which is fair to all. To achieve this we must not tolerate the enduring social problems of domestic abuse, sexual harassment, rape, forced marriage, trafficking, honour crimes (including murder) and genital mutilation.
Domestic abuse can include all kinds of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, and can occur within all kinds of intimate relationships, including same sex relationships. Women and children suffer in particular but men can also be victims.
Violence against women and domestic abuse must not be tolerated in Wales on any level. The Welsh Government is determined to hold perpetrators accountable for what they do and is committed to protecting and supporting the victims of domestic abuse.
In Wales we want to develop a culture that challenges and questions abusive behaviour.
