Every 15 minutes, an instance of domestic violence is reported to the Merseyside police.
Across the Liverpool City Region, tens of thousands of women struggle every day to rebuild their lives after sexual assault, domestic abuse, FGM and other forms of violence against women and girls. Some of them survive, others do not.
Despite this reality, we still have no region-wide strategy to end violence against women and girls.
It is time to change that.
Join us to call on each of the candidates for Metro Mayor of Liverpool City Region to commit to a region-wide strategy to end violence against women and girls, starting from their first 100 days in office.
Please add your name - and help us put Liverpool City Region on the map for the right reasons.
Share the petition along with a photo of your pledge to "Stand together to end violence against women in Liverpool City Region".
