Domestic & sexual abuse

Fife Violence Against Women Partnership logo

Violence against women includes a wide range of abusive behaviours including:


  • domestic abuse
  • emotional abuse
  • rape
  • incest and childhood sexual abuse
  • sexual harassment and intimidation at work and in the public sphere
  • commercial sexual exploitation, including prostitution, pornography and trafficking
  • dowry related violence
  • female genital mutilation
  • forced and child marriages
  • “honour crimes”


Women and children are most commonly the victims.  But men can also experience a range of these abusive behaviours. There are support agencies that can help.
