2020 is the 20th birthday of Womens Aid Orkney
I was very proud to be working with a fantastic group women to mark International Women’s Day (8th of March) this year in Shetland
On Thursday 1st February 2018 the Scottish Parliament passed the Domestic Abuse Scotland Bill.
“There’s no place for it in Scotland and this new funding will greatly assist in tackling it.”
“It is incumbent on men to challenge attitudes and assumptions which reinforce many of the behaviours associated with violence against women.”
the guest speaker was Michelle Robertson of Women’s Aid Orkney
“Domestic abuse is often about control, the blame for which lies solely with the perpetrators.”
“The Bill creates a new statutory offence of domestic abuse that recognises the damage and hurt that non-physical abuse can cause.”
