Starting this November, the Scottish Women’s Rights Centre (SWRC) has launched two monthly legal surgeries for women living in the North of Scotland who have experienced abuse or violence.
The surgeries are located in Dundee and Inverness at local Women’s Aids groups and they are available by appointment once a month on a Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.
In recent months we have seen more women coming forward about their experience of sexual harassment, and university and college students and staff haven’t been the exception.
Only this summer, Channel 4 uncovered the increase in reports of sexual harassment in UK universities. And earlier this year, a survey by Brook (a sexual health and wellbeing charity) found that almost half of the female university students they interviewed had experienced inappropriate touching.
So, what can you do if you or someone you know has been sexually harassed at college or university? We have compiled a short list of useful things to know about sexual harassment and steps you can take.
The Scottish Women’s Rights Centre (SWRC) have today (Tuesday 29th October) launched an advocacy support helpline for women survivors of gender based violence living in Scotland.

This summer I joined the Scottish Women’s Rights Centre as a summer placement student, and the two months I spent there were invaluable. Not only did I get to see the SWRC at work, I got to develop my legal skills and be part of a busy legal office.
The Scottish Women’s Rights Centre (SWRC) have today (Thursday 1st August 2019) launched a new specialist legal service which will provide legal information, advice and representation to women who have experienced sexual harassment at work, in further education or online.
