Watch experts from Rights of Women, Women In Prison, Women for Refugee Women and Abortion Rights giving snapshot insights into these issues. This is one of four films in UK Feminista's 'Building a Feminist Future' series that explore some of the big issues in women's inequality today.

          Experts from the End Violence Against Women Coalition, Imkaan, Southall Black Sisters, Eaves, Object, Anti-Porn Men and leading academics give insights into the factors that drive and perpetuate violence against women and girls and what we need to do to end it. As the experts in this film make clear, it is the lack of political will, not a lack of solutions, that is holding us back from eliminating violence against women and girls. It is one of four films in UK Feminista's 'Building a Feminist Future' series that explore some of the big issues in women's inequality today. The films were made in the run-up to the Feminist Lobby of Parliament on 24 October 2012. At the Lobby hundreds of women and men from around the UK called on their MPs to take urgent action to drive forward women's equality now. www.ukfeminista.org.uk/feministlobby
