Abstract

In this document The Psychology of Women and Equalities Section (POWES) of the British Psychological Society (BPS) presents an initial responsei to the “Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy Call for Evidence – Public Survey”. In this initial response, POWES deems it necessary to urgently draw the Home Office’s attention to several shortcomings in both survey design and conceptualisation of VAWG. This approach will render data gathered from this survey impossible to analyse meaningfully therefore calling in to question any empirical conclusions. In addition to these issues, POWES highlights limitations in the ethical treatment of those who have experienced gendered violence.
