This is the joint website of  Women Against Rape and Black Women's Rape Action Project. Both organisations are based on self-help and provide support, legal information and advocacy. We campaign for justice and protection for all women and girls, including asylum seekers, who have suffered sexual, domestic and/or racist violence.

WAR was founded in 1976. It has won changes in the law, such as making rape in marriage a crime, set legal precedents and achieved compensation for many women. BWRAP was founded in 1991. It focuses on getting justice for women of colour, bringing out the particular discrimination they face. It has prevented the deportation of many rape survivors. Both organisations are multiracial.

Children and Social Work Bill

Dear friends

Below is our letter to MPs. Please write ASAP to your MP and other MPs you may have a relationship with, to urge them to delete or amend the worst aspects of this Bill. While families are impoverished under austerity cuts, children are increasingly being removed rather than mothers given protection, resources and support to enable their children to stay with them. You can use some of our points if you want to, or write your own.

There is increasing opposition to this Bill, please urge your MP to also sign Early Day Motion 626 Children’s Social Care against the privatisation of child services.

Please send us a copy of any letters you write.
Nicola Mann

Dear MP
