Last Friday Male Survivors Partnership submitted written evidence to the Home Office call for evidence on ‘violence against women and girls’, which Government stated included consideration of men and boys. You can see the full submission included as a pdf with this blog post.
We made a clear argument for a strategy on violence against men and boys, particularly, from our point of view, focused on sexual violence – including the links to domestic violence. We laid out strategic actions the government should take now and objectives it should work towards. Next up we are hoping to develop conversations we already have with government officials to shape an updated male victims position statement – which is committed to in the government’s new strategy on child sexual abuse – and secure commitment to a longer term strategy for men and boys.
