What is VAWG?

 
In September 2014, Haringey Council formally agreed to adopt the terminology of “Violence Against Women and Girls”. This is in line with the Government’s Ending violence against women and girls strategy: 2016 to 2020 (external link) and the Mayor of London’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) updated Mayor's Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy 2018-2021 (external link).
 
We have adopted the United Nations Declaration (1993) on the elimination of violence against women, in which Article 1 defines violence against women and girls as:
 
“Any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life"
 

 

It includes the following types of abuse and crimes. Click on the links below for more information:
