Ending Violence against Women and Girls

The Northern Ireland Executive has directed that a Strategy to End Violence Against Women and Girls be developed, and the Executive Office is leading this work across departments.

A programme of engagement and research is underway to inform the co-design process, with the aim of having a draft framework for the Ending Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy by the end of 2022.

The Strategy to tackle Violence Against Women and Girls; the Equally Safe Strategy will identify actions to tackle violent and abusive behaviour directed at women and girls precisely because they are women and girls. This includes crimes and unwanted behaviour in the physical and online world.
