Why is it necessary? See these recent reports:
- National Community Attitudes towards violence against women from Australia showed a lack of understanding
- A recent Survey of the British public found a lack of awareness of what constitutes rape
- Women Aid resources campaigning for more support for survivors.
- Office for National Statistics Domestic abuse findings form the National Crime Survey and analysis of the characteristics of abuse survivors.
