We bring together the world’s best minds to make violence against women and girls a thing of the past.

We take a holistic approach to develop research, provide guidance on policies and programmes, and build creative ways to incite social change. It’s our community that makes us, and we want you to join in.

Be part of the change: contact us for more information.



Solid research forms the basis of all good problem solving. We conduct rigorous research to understand what causes violence against women and pin point strategies to stop it from happening. Our team is experienced in leading national and multi-national research projects, impact evaluations and in-depth quantitative and qualitative research. Members of our team have been involved in leading large studies, including the United Nations Multi-Country Study on Men and Violence.

Contact us to tell us about how we might be able to help your research or to find out more  about the work we do.


Social change is fundamentally a creative process. We work with designers, content producers and artists to turn research from data to inspiration. We believe that numbers can tell a powerful story and we’re committed to sharing knowledge that excites public conversation.

We create opportunities for collaboration within the violence against women sector, and beyond, to grow a community for change. Contact us to be a part of this or learn more about our creative side.
