Event description
Join us for this session on supporting women and girls through the criminal justice system.

About this event

Join us in exploring how the criminal justice system and Family Courts blame and pathologise women and girls who have been subjected to violence and abuse.

Key topics:

• How the structures, laws, techniques and procedures used in the investigation and prosecution of sexual offenses frequently blames the victim rather than the perpetrator.

• Why sexual offenses are the least reported crime.

• Research showing how sexual and domestic violence trials are heavily biased against women and girls.

• How to support women and girls who have been subjected to violence but are treated as the offender by the Courts as their character and behaviour are scrutinised.

Suitable for:

Anyone with an interest in the victim blaming endemic in the Courts. Professionals, volunteers and members of the public are welcome.

This event is part of the VictimFocus open training programme.
