14 Jul 2015

Visions for Gender EqualityThe SCCJR’s Dr Nancy Lombard, of Glasgow Caledonian University, has contributed a chapter to the European Commission’s new report, Visions for Gender Equality.

In Gendered violence: a cause and a consequence of inequality, she argues that gender segregation and division must end, and ‘promoting gender equality would mean that violence against women is no longer normalised or endorsed by gendered stereotypes’.

Dr Lombard goes on to cite good practice from Scotland in the areas of prevention, provision and protection.
