This report sets out the findings of research to identify the progress being made by public authorities in one of two areas designated in Scotland as ministerial priorities under the Gender Equality Duty: tackling violence against women. There is evidence that violence against women continues to be a significant problem in Scottish society and affects many women and children. It is linked to, and a consequence of, wider gender inequality, and is a continuing barrier to equality. The research involved: an evidence review of research, statistical data and Scottish Government policy (carried out in-house by the Scottish Government); a document review covering a sample of 72 public authorities and 3 umbrella organisations (carried out by Reid Howie Associates and Equality Plus); case studies covering 31 public authorities (carried out by Reid Howie Associates and Equality Plus); analysis and report writing.
