State needs to act against acts of gender violence, human rights group say


PhD scholars at the Irish Centre for Human Rights are advocating for a more sustainable change in Ireland's fight against gender-violence.

Maëlle Noir and Judit Villena Rodo, PhD scholars at the Irish Centre for Human Rights say the Irish government needs to step up and do more, as well as continue to build on progress they have implemented. The calls for change come as Ireland has seen a 'shadow pandemic' of gender-based violence during the coronavirus lockdown.

Calls to Women's Aid in Ireland have increased by 1000 calls a month and refuges for women fleeing violence have become less accessible.
