About Us

Against Rape is a resource providing support, legal information and advocacy, campaigning for justice and protection for all women and girls, including asylum seekers, who have suffered sexual, domestic and/or racist violence.

Women Against Rape (WAR) was founded in 1976. It has won changes in the law, such as making rape in marriage a crime, set legal precedents and achieved compensation for many women.

Black Women’s Rape Action Project (BWRAP) was founded in 1991. It focuses on getting justice for women of colour, bringing out the particular discrimination they face. It has prevented the deportation of many rape survivors.

Both organisations are multiracial.

All African Women’s Group
