Public awareness

We're working to achieve the Equally Safe Vision, to stop violence against women and make our communities safe for all. We want men, women and children to think about the issues and how they personally can make a difference. We aim to achieve this by various public awareness strategies, including media campaigns and hosting exhibitions locally.

This includes supporting the National white ribbon pledge - “never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women

The Fife Violence Against Women Partnership co-ordinates campaigns with partners. Our current and most recent are listed below, with links to our campaign messages at the bottom of the page:

  • #ToointoyouFVAWP2019
  • #consent FVAWP2019
  • #FVAWP16days2020

Part of our public awareness strategy has been to host exhibitions from national Violence Against Women (VAW) partners, that highlight various areas of Gender Based Violence. In 2019 we hosted two:

  1. Zero Tolerance’s "Violence Unseen" photography exhibition, exploring types of violence against women that remain unseen and unacknowledged by mainstream society
  2. Inside Outside - an exhibition which explores Women’s experiences of the sex industry in Scotland using multi-media platforms. **Video below**

Violence against women and girls, in any form, has no place in our vision for a safe, strong, successful Scotland. It damages health and wellbeing, limits freedom and potential, and is a violation of the most fundamental human rights.
