 50 years on – domestic abuse is getting smarter

On our 50th anniversary, sadly there is little to celebrate. The numbers of women experiencing domestic abuse, especially tech abuse, is rising – not decreasing.

Intimate image abuse must be taken more seriously and treated as the crime that it is. The current law is failing victims but there is an opportunity within the #OnlineSafetyBill for the government to provide further protection for women. @EVAWuk

A huge thank you to @working_prog for their support in creating the film and helping us raise awareness of the realities of tech abuse.
