New Wales Bill to prevent violence against women welcomed by Welsh Women’s Aid

Welsh Women’s Aid welcomes the Welsh Government’s ‘Gender Based Violence, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Bill’ which has been introduced to the National Assembly for Wales today.

This Bill presents a significant opportunity for Wales to lead the way in the UK in reducing and preventing domestic abuse, sexual violence and all forms of gendered-based violence.

"Structural inequalities that are experienced by women with intersecting experiences of racism and homophobia exacerbate the experience of domestic abuse and can create barriers for them to access support within their communities" @GwendolynSterk on @964thewave #16Days #16Dyddiau twitter.com/journohannah/s…
