Press Releases

Scottish Women’s Aid welcomes the resignation of Bill Walker. We are disappointed Mr Walker cites media attention as the reason, rather than the twenty-three charges of assault and one breach of the peace involving an air gun against three partners and one step daughter. We would like to commend the bravery of these women in speaking out.

This case has highlighted on-going concerns that domestic abuse is routinely prosecuted at summary trail, and we will be raising this with the Crown Office.

Facts & Figures

Studies estimate between 31% and 84% of women with a history of domestic abuse meet the diagnostic criteria for PTSD. For the general population this is between1.2% and 12%
