MSPs Call for an End to Gender-Based Violence

Stewart Stevenson MSP joined with his male colleagues in parliament this week to stand against the gender-based violence of women and girls.
This comes during the ‘16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence’ campaign which is an annual international campaign that kicks off on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day.

In recent years, the voices of survivors and activists, through campaigns such as #MeToo, #TimesUp, and others, have put the spotlight on the issue of sexual violence and have reached a crescendo that cannot be silenced or ignored anymore.

The theme this year is “Orange the World: Generation Equality Stands against Rape!”.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP, said:

“I was delighted to add my support as an ally to women who have experienced gender-based violence.

“Still too many women across the world are victims of unthinkable crimes such as female genital mutilation, human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

“People from all walks of life can learn more and take a stand against gender-based violence.”
