This is the joint website of  Women Against Rape and Black Women's Rape Action Project. Both organisations are based on self-help and provide support, legal information and advocacy. We campaign for justice and protection for all women and girls, including asylum seekers, who have suffered sexual, domestic and/or racist violence.

WAR was founded in 1976. It has won changes in the law, such as making rape in marriage a crime, set legal precedents and achieved compensation for many women. BWRAP was founded in 1991. It focuses on getting justice for women of colour, bringing out the particular discrimination they face. It has prevented the deportation of many rape survivors. Both organisations are multiracial.

Children and Social Work Bill - submission to the Bill Committee

Submission to the Public Bill Committee on Children and Social Work Bill
from Women Against Rape 12 December 2016

We have already expressed our concerns about this Bill as part of a joint submission to the Public Bill Committee made together with Black Women’s Rape Action Project, Global Women’s Strike, Legal Action for Women and Single Mothers Self Defence. However we want to draw particular attention to the situation faced by victims of domestic violence and their children.
