ROTA Female Voice in Violence project and final report

The final report of ROTA’s Female Voice in Violence project was published in March 2011.

The Race on the Agenda (ROTA) Female Voice in Violence Programme seeks to: assess the impact of criminal gangs and serious youth violence on women and girls; inform and improve policy and strategy to tackle criminal gangs, serious youth violence (SYV) and violence against women and girls (VAWG); and support the voluntary sector to respond to the needs of women and girls affected by criminal gangs and serious youth violence.

The final report of the project shows that ‘Girls and women across the country who disclose experience of rape, torture, abuse, exploitation and manipulation as a result of their relationships with gang-associated male family members and peers are at risk of repeat abuse and victimisation’.
