Classroom drive to curb violence in relationships
"Classes in preventing violence in relationships are to become compulsory for children aged five to 15 within 18 months as part of an official drive to tackle violence against women and girls.
"The move will be underpinned by a campaign next year targeting intimate teenage violence following research by the children's charity, NSPCC, which showed that a quarter of teenage girls suffer physical violence such as being slapped, punched or beaten by their boyfriends, and a third of those in a relationship suffer an unwanted sexual act.
"The government's strategy to tackle violence against women and girls published today also promises funding for a 24-hour sexual violence helpline and the development of a separate dedicated stalking and harassment helpline "so emerging violence can be nipped in the bud"."
