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.

Rhiannon Brooker - sentenced to 3 and 1/2 years

Thanks for all your support for Rhiannon Brooker who was sentenced yesterday. Despite having been a victim of child abuse and being the mother of a 10-month-old baby still breastfeeding, Rhiannon was jailed for 3 and 1/2 years by Judge Lambert (the same judge who sent Gail Sherwood to prison for two years) – a callous and vindictive sentence.
