31 MAY: Ending Gendered Violence
in partnership with Festival of Debate
This online panel event will explore the wide-reaching effects that misogyny has on many marginalised groups of people, both in public and private spaces. These groups include but are not limited to women, non-binary, trans and gender nonconforming people.
The panel will also be looking at how misogyny then intersects with race, sexuality, religion and more, and how it can then manifest into different forms of oppression. There will also be a discussion around the possible ways gendered violence can be tackled – and eventually eradicated.
Digital event. 5:30-7pm. Tickets free.
