Rape Crisis


End violence against womenRape Crisis England & Wales is a proud member of the End Violence Against Women Coalition.


End Violence Against Women (EVAW) is a UK-wide coalition of women’s organisations, frontline service providers, survivors, human rights organisations, academics and activists who came together in 2005 to campaign for strategic approaches to all forms of violence against women and girls in the UK. We work to the UN definition of violence against women and girls (VAWG) as ‘violence directed at a woman because she is a woman or acts of violence which are suffered disproportionately by women’ (CEDAW, 1992).


EVAW members campaigned successfully for the Westminster, London and Wales Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) strategies and EVAW runs a network of experts on preventing VAWG.
