Thanks to brilliant individuals and organisations working to end the violence and abuse of women and girls, we do not have to reinvent the wheel. We can work together, and strengthen the fight on all fronts.

Women’s Aid & NIA Femicide Census
In 2016-2017, Making Herstory was proud to support the launch of the first ever Femicide Census: a crucial database containing information on over one thousand women killed by men in England and Wales since 2009. As part of its launch, our Founder & CEO spoke on film about her aunt’s murder. Learn more HERE, or download the full report HERE.
Working as One
Making Herstory was founded on the knowledge that expertise and experience is everywhere.
But when it comes to tackling violence, abuse, and trafficking crimes, the many agencies involved in this worthy fight rarely work together and rarely share vital information. By negating each other’s expertise and those of local communities, they miss out on clues, developments and outcomes that could help prevent the daily abuses and murders of women at the hands of men.
To help close the gap, strengthen the works of allies and encourage sharing and dissemination of expertise-led information, we strive to:
- Identify expert organisations and individuals working towards the same-end goal of ending violence against women and girls.
- Assess, report back on, recommend and help develop resources / strategies / tools being used or created to mobilise different communities against gender-based abuses.
- Help raise awareness of works being undertaken by both individuals and organisations with a view to strengthening their supporter base.
