29th November – 9th December (various dates and times) on Zoom

Between 29th November and 9th December, we’re running a series of events designed to open up the conversation about VAWG and consider what can be done about it. We’ll be looking into a wide range of issues, including how our society raises sons, experiences of street harassment, why the rise in the legal age of marriage is so important and how FGM continues to be an issue in the UK (plus more). With some events aimed at women only and others for both women and men, there should be something for everyone.

If you’d like to join a session but don’t feel confident about using Zoom, then let us know and we can help you get started.
