Event description

Description

Forced marriage is often described as a type of gender based violence. This forum will explore the links between forced marriage and social attitudes and structures that discriminate against women and girls, and how the practice may lead to further gender inequality. The forum is a part of the Inaugural Conference on Forced Marriage.

Our keynote speaker will be Jasvinder Sanghera. Jasvinder was born and brought up in Derby. A survivor of a forced marriage, she is the founder of Karma Nirvana, a national award winning charity that supports both men and women affected by honour based abuse and forced marriages.

She is a highly acclaimed international speaker and an expert advisor to the courts in matters of child, civil and criminal proceedings, is a chair of domestic homicide reviews and was instrumental in ensuring that all UK police forces are required to improve their understanding of honour based abuse and forced marriage by inspections conducted by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary.

Verity Firth the Executive Director, for Social Justice leading the newly established Centre for Social Justice and Inclusion at the University of Technology Sydney will moderate the panel and question and asnwer session. She will be joined by Moo Baulch chief executive of Domestic Violence NSW and Joumanah El Matrah is the CEO of the Australian Muslim Women's Centre for Human Rights (AMWCHR).
