Executive Summary

This report presents findings from the 2014 Young People In Scotland survey on the attitudes of young people (aged 11-18) to the following forms of violence against women: domestic abuse (physical violence and controlling behaviour), sexual harassment and commercial sexual exploitation. It will provide a baseline measure of views of young people in Scotland against which progress towards the objectives outlined in Equally Safe (an ambitious new strategy launched by the Scottish Government, to prevent and eradicate violence against women and girls) can be assessed. The views of young people to violence against women from the 2014 Young People in Scotland survey are also compared with those of adults from the Scottish Social Attitudes Survey in 2014. 2,285 secondary school pupils in Scotland took part in the survey between September and November 2014.
