Event description

16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence

To conclude our seminar series this year, CSI UWA will host a panel discussion around the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence. We will bring together speakers from St Johns WA, Salvation Army, Zonta House Refuge Association, PLAN/Bridging the Gap and DVassist. The broad work of these organisations intersects with addressing family and domestic violence as well as violence against women and girls. This Q&A session facilitated by CSI UWA Senior Research Fellow Dr Mariana Atkins will provide some insights on trends, barriers and what is needed for change.
