SERTUC Women’s Rights Committee, White Ribbon Event – Friday 25 November 2016

SERTUwhiteribbonC Women’s Rights Committee OPEN invite to mark: WHITE RIBBON DAY
Friday 25 November 2016
6 – 8pm, TUC Congress House

Guest Speakers include:

  • James Chespy – from the White Ribbon Campaign
  • Hilary Burrage – Socialist Author and Campaigner Against FGM

Let’s end violence towards women and girls, SERTUC is committed to ending violence against women and girls so join us to mark the day when we get together to highlight the issues and work together to end it once and for all. A conservative estimate by the UN states that 35% of women worldwide have experienced violence at the hands of another person and 43% of women in 28 EU states have experienced some form of physiological violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. The ‘Helen/Rob’ storyline in ’The Archers’ has reached millions of people and, via a ‘just giving’ page, has raised over £98,000 for the women’s charity, Refuge.
Information about the venue: Congress House is a fully accessible building
