A leading Cardiff University academic will argue this week that the Welsh Government's Gender-based Violence, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Bill designed to improve arrangements for the prevention of domestic abuse and sexual violence will fail if it doesn't place education, children's rights and children and young people's own experiences at its heart.

Emma Renold, Professor in Childhood Studies at the School of Social Sciences, will use a briefing to AMs to argue that without legislative change that ensures all school children and young people in Wales receive comprehensive education to address daily experiences of inter-personal sexual harassment, the cycle of gender and sexual violence in children's peer cultures will prevail.
