Motion by Councillor Haslam

Consider Motion by Councillor Haslam in following terms:-

 

“That this council recognises the 16 days of action to support women and girls who are victims of violence.  3 in 5 women in Scotland have suffered sexual harassment or assault in the past, with over two thirds saying that they don’t feel safe walking at night.  As a council we stand with these women and girls and call for more support, recognition and funding from all Governments to prevent this violence, and support women who have been victims of violence.  We recognise the work of Borders Rape Crisis Centre, and their new project launching this week, Sunrise - a support service for women 18+ who have experienced sexual violence at any point in their lives in the Scottish Borders.  We must do more, we can do more.”
