Recognising the Vital Role Men Must Play in Challenging and Eradicating Violence Against Women and Girls

  • Submitted by: Christina McKelvie, Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse, Scottish National Party.
  • Date lodged: Monday, 28 November 2022
  • Motion reference: S6M-07002
  • Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Wednesday, 30 November 2022

That the Parliament recognises that violence against women and girls is abhorrent and has both a devastating impact on those affected and a destructive impact on the wellbeing of society; acknowledges that the global theme of 2022’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence is "UNITE! Activism to end violence against women and girls"; recognises that the eradication of violence against women and girls cannot be achieved without men recognising the vital role they must play on a daily basis in tackling deep-rooted sexism and misogyny that is inherent in the perpetrating of such violence; welcomes Police Scotland’s Don’t be that Guy campaign as a positive contribution in promoting a wider cultural shift to encourage men to take responsibility for stopping violence and discrimination against women and girls across all settings, and challenging the idea that it is the responsibility of women and girls to protect themselves from male violence, and is united in wanting a strong and flourishing Scotland, where all individuals are equally safe and respected.
