Celebrate International Women’s Day 2020 with The Dash Charity and some of the most inspirational and knowledgeable speakers from the UK.
Joining us at this event will be survivors, legal experts and government officials to share their insight on the challenges of keeping women and girls safe in our communities.
The International Women’s Day theme this year is #EachforEqual. This conference will spotlight gender based violence as a barrier to women today, and explore what we as civilians, as professionals, and as people can do to tackle this issue. Domestic abuse affects 1 in 4 women - everyone knows someone.
Domestic abuse is everybody’s business and the more we know the more we can help stop it. Domestic abuse stops here. See it. Stop it. Stand with us.
