At The Women’s Centre we’re running our 16 Days of Action activity from the 25th November until the 10th December to mark the international campaign for an end to violence against women and girls. We’re running a whole host of activities including Sharing Lives, a look at the lives of women in Kyrgyzstan and Vietnam. We’re also running a personal safety workshop for women with a discussion on confidence and self-esteem. Crucially, we are running a seminar on domestic abuse and coercive control.
