A huge thank you to all of you who attended the 2018 Write Awards this week. We were thrilled to see such a packed event with so many people passionate about good media representation about violence against women.
Our compère Jude Henderson did a fantastic job of coordinating the ceremony and keeping things running smoothly.
We would like to give thanks to our wonderful MSP and speaker Christina McKelvie MSP, Minister for Older People and Equalities; it is wonderful to have MSPs who are actively and vocally challenging the narrative that says violence against women is ever acceptable. Huge thanks as well to our wonderful panel of judges and of course all the writers who entered this year’s competition.
Zero Tolerance is supported in the running of the Write Awards by White Ribbon Scotland, Scottish Women’s Aid, Engender, Everyday Victim Blaming, Rape Crisis Scotland, Forth Valley Rape Crisis, and media partner, The Daily Record newspaper.
