Domestic Abuse: Everyone’s Problem

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Anyone can experience domestic abuse. Seven women a month are killed by a current or former partner in England and Wales.

In September 2019, the number of people killed as a result of domestic violence in the UK was at its highest level in five years.

Come and hear the facts, the issues, and explore what the real face of ‘intimate terrorism’ looks like, in a session that includes first-hand testimony of domestic abuse.

Speakers to be announced.
