Please join us for a one-day conference, organised by Dr Dev R Maitra of the Institute of Social Justice & Crime, University of Suffolk (Trauma Injustice Violence and Abuse Theme) titled:
Violence Against Women & Girls in 2022: Problems and Solutions.
15 July 2022.
To be hosted at The Hold, University of Suffolk.
This day will bring together a wide range of practitioners, activists, academics and scholars to discuss the topic of violence against women and girls in contemporary society.
There has been increased attention, both in the UK, and globally, in the rights of women and girls and the vicissitudes faced by them in daily life. This has been particularly amplified through cases such as the murder of Sarah Everard in the U.K., the heightened levels of domestic abuse during lockdown, and the murder of Dr Lorena Quaranta at the start of the global pandemic in Sicily, Italy, in March 2020. Increased academic and public attention has not, however, always led to legislative change, and problems still remain entrenched and manifold, ranging from street-level sexual harassment, femicide and discrimination.
Please join us for this free, fully catered one day conference which will bring together leading experts in the field, from both the VAWG sector and beyond. In addition to renowned speakers, there will be extensive opportunities for networking.
