Message from the webinar chair molly akhurst

Dear all,

I am so grateful to you all for registering, watching and joining in yesterday’s conversation on prison abolition and gendered violence – I personally found it so very helpful and I hope you all did too. Speaking and thinking about abolition can feel exciting, but it can also involve hard and difficult thinking; and nowhere is that more true than in regards to gendered violence. Yesterday’s conversation attempted to focus in on some of the knottier questions, and tried to speak deeply about abolitionist strategy from a pragmatic standpoint that simultaneously placed survivors safety, needs and wants at the centre. As was mentioned during the discussion, I have created a long list of resources that were mentioned and also alluded to – and I hope you find these useful. If you have any questions for myself or any of the brilliant speakers please don’t hesitate to email vawgrn@mdx.ac.uk who will pass them over to us.

with warmth

molly ackhurst
