More Inclusivity in Campaigning
Support and campaign materials for women experiencing abuse need to be more inclusive for those of all races, sexualities, and genders, so that all women feel like they are being represented, as some may feel that campaigns focus too much on heterosexual relationships. This issue came up in the Rise Report by Women’s Aid- The-Rise-Report-Final.pdf (womensaid.scot) and respondent’s said that they were more likely to seek out services if they knew there was one available for their specific age group, sexuality, ethnicity, or gender.
Why the contribution is important
This is really important as some women struggle with validating their abuse as they think that someone will always have it worse than them or they don’t know if they will get help because their situation isn’t represented in support campaigns. It is also an important issue as some women aren’t reporting their experiences or seeking out help.
