Promoting gender equality and ending violence against women – a focused study of work in five UK secondary schools
£57,908, WomanKind The study, commissioned by Womankind Worldwide, sought to examine how five schools understood and developed a 'whole school approach' to promoting gender equality and challenging violence against women and girls. 12 in depth visits were undertaken across the 5 schools over the course of 2 academic years (2008/09 and 2009/10). Time was spent in the classroom and playground, as well as interviewing 60 members of staff (as well as some parents and Governors) and involving over 200 students in group discussions. The findings from the school-based research were developed further through an in-depth literature overview examining: extent of violence against women and girls experienced in schools and outside schools, evaluations of programmes to prevent violence against women and girls run in schools, reports on initiatives to promote gender equality in schools, and discussions on the concept 'a whole school approach'. Finally, 17 national and local professionals working in the fields of equalities and/or violence against women and girls were interviewed to identify areas of good practice and links between made between work developed by local authorities and initiatives within schools.
