‘The proposals [for the Domestic Violence and Abuse Bill] are narrow and still fail to guarantee women will be protected’. 

This is according to April 2018 response from End Violence Against Women (EVAW) on the proposed Domestic Violence and Abuse Bill (pdf).

EVAW encourages others to read their working response to the consultation and make their own submissions. The consultation closes on 31 May 2018.
