Breaking the Silence: International Women's Day

Breaking the Silence
Join us for a coffee morning with an opportunity to meet a range of organisations and to pledge to take action for the United Nation's Sustainable development Goal 5 to "Eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls worldwide"

Over twenty organisations are working together, including Mothers’ Union Norwich Diocese, Magdalene Group, Norfolk Federation of Women’s Institutes, Age UK, Victim Support and MIND. Many of the organisations involved work with women across Norfolk and globally to build confidence and against domestic abuse and violence.
 
Aneeta Prem, who will speak about violence against women and girls worldwide at the event, is an author and public speaker and founder of Freedom Charity, who aim to raise awareness and prevent child abuse, especially forced marriage and FGM affecting girls in the UK. Aneeta was instrumental in helping make forced marriage a crime in July 2014. She travels up and down the country delivering talks to students in schools, colleges and universities and donating tens of thousands of copies of her book But It’s Not Fair
