The escalation of violence against women and girls

Inquiry

As part of our programme of work on preventing violence against women and girls, this new inquiry looks at perpetrator interventions in a criminal justice setting. The inquiry will look at the ‘pyramid of offences’ that perpetrators may rise through, leading from offences such as flashing and revenge porn up to the most serious violent crimes.
