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.

Speech @ SlutWalk by Cristel Amiss, Black Women's Rape Action Project

p1030539.jpgYou all look great, you look amazing from up here - we’re so glad to be here together in our thousands, from all our different backgrounds. We belong together!

Slutwalks are everywhere it’s like a wave across the globe: Brazil, Argentina and one planned in India. They are an occasion where women of colour can be visible as survivors, and speak up about our often invisible organising against rape. In the UK and across the globe, women of colour face racist and sexist violence.
