A NEW survey aimed at finding out more about public attitudes to gender-based violence has been launched in Dundee.

The city’s violence against women partnership is carrying out the poll to aid in shaping services that will help to keep people safe.

Ann Hamilton, independent chair of the Dundee Violence Against Women Partnership said: β€œWhen looking at any form of violence against women - domestic abuse, rape, prostitution we tend to focus on the victim and her children, if any.

β€œWhile we need to provide support and protection, and ensure safety and recovery this doesn’t address prevention of such crimes. To stop the inevitability of male violence we have to look at gender inequality and researching public attitudes is crucial.

β€œBy running the attitude survey we want to uncover some of the underlying views on, and opinions of, gender-based violence and by doing so develop strategies to combat it.”

The short survey, which takes around five minutes to complete, is completely anonymous and lays out a number of scenarios before asking for respondents to choose which view most closely corresponds with their own.

It runs until November 7 and can be completed at
