Glasgow City show support to Scottish Women's Aid
 Women's Football Club News - 1 Dec 2020
As part of their commitment to the UN 16 days of action to end violence against women, Glasgow City's first team jerseys versus Spartans on Sunday will bear the name of Scottish Women's Aid above each player's name and number.
After the match, all jerseys will be sold with the proceeds being donated to Scottish Women's Aid.
Scottish Women's Aid is the lead domestic abuse charity in Scotland, playing a pivotal role in co-ordinating, influencing and campaigning for effective response to domestic abuse. It works with a network of 36 specialist women's aid groups throughout the country providing crucial support to women, young people and children who are victims of domestic abuse.
The UN 16 days of action started on November 25th, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and will end on Human Rights Day on 10th December. During this period we join hands with survivors, activists, decision makers and people from all walks of life to shine a light on the need for funding, essential services, prevention and data to shape better informed services.
Commenting, City's Laura Montgomery said: "Violence against women and girls is an obstacle to achieving equality.
"During the Covid-19 pandemic, the UN reports that intimate partner violence reports have risen across the globe with calls to helplines increasing five times in some countries.
"We ask our friends and supporters to join us and help end the devastating human rights violation of violence against women and girls."
Dr Marsha Scott, CEO of Scottish Women's Aid, added: "COVID-19, and measures to limit the spread of the virus, have had a huge impact on women and children experiencing domestic abuse and on the already overstretched services that support them. Abusers have used lockdown and other measures as a means to further isolate and control those they are abusing, at great risk to the safety and wellbeing of women, children and young people. Responses to the pandemic have also had detrimental impacts on access to refuge accommodation, child contact processes and the already very fragile access to justice that survivors have.
"In this environment, we are so grateful that the sisters of Glasgow City have chosen to raise funds for us in the 16 Days and to join our work to strengthen and protect the rights and safety of women, children and young people, especially those experiencing domestic abuse."
The Glasgow City match jerseys from the Spartans game featuring their support for Scottish Women's Aid are available for pre-sale now on the club's website shop at www.glasgowcityfc.co.uk with all proceeds being donated directly to the charity. The team will be wearing their new pink colours for this match.
