Bristol Zero Tolerance is a new initiative working towards Bristol becoming a city free from gender-based violence, abuse, harassment and exploitation. Bristol is the first city in England to take on this challenge and the hope is that it will inspire other cities to implement similar initiatives. This is not a female only issue: gender-based violence affects all genders and can affect anyone regardless of their background.
