Rural Experiences of Gender-Based Violence
This post talks about domestic abuse and may be triggering for some people.
Using the words and experiences of some of the women we have supported, Lochaber Women’s Aid has created a video to look at the issues survivors of domestic abuse face in rural communities.
Lochaber Women's Aid also highlights how some rural cultural attitudes and institutional structures need to change, so that we can end gender-based violence and abuse in order to #ChangeHerStory.
Lochaber Women's Aid is the only specialist, confidential service in Lochaber that provides advice, information, and support for women, children, and young people who are experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse.
