Action Breaks Silence - Creating Safer Communities

Action Breaks Silence is an educational charity, established to create a world where women and girls can live their lives free from gender-based violence.

Given the ever-increasing escalation of violent crime perpetrated against women and girls in UK, there has never been a more urgent need to engage, educate and empower the youth and to facilitate real and lasting behavioural change.

Action Breaks Silence has a multi-pronged approach to end gender-based violence. We believe strongly that, as a society, we all have a role to play in ending gender-based violence and our abiding vision is, in one generation, to make communities safer for women and girls.

Action Breaks Silence founder & CEO, Debi Steven (MA, London Met, School of Social Sciences specialising in Women & Child Abuse) has designed the Action Breaks Silence Community Intervention aimed at profoundly changing the prevailing narrative on gender-based violence by tacking gender inequality and toxic masculinity and working to prevent it at a community level, rather than allowing it to be continually viewed as a “woman’s issue”.

Gender-based violence in the UK

  • Approximately 85,000 women are raped and over 400,000 women are sexually assaulted in England and Wales every year.

  • Sexual violence is even more prevalent for younger women as one in three teenage girls has experienced some form of sexual violence from a partner before they are 18.

  • Half of all young people (irrespective of gender) reported emotional abuse, most often being shouted at or being called names.  

  • One fifth of young people are exposed to physical violence (a greater proportion are female) and experience as much abuse in relationships as adults.

  • On average, two women in England and Wales are killed every week by a current or former male partner.

  • The UK police receive a call every minute about domestic abuse, 89% of which are about a woman being abused by a man.
